Mountain girl

In my make-a-book-a-month-for-2010 goal, I realized in the last few days of August that I didn’t have any cover board. So, I decided to go with a soft cover creation, inspired by Susan Kendal’s newest choreography, Mountain Girl (co-choreographed and performed by Brittany Duggan).

With a glacier deep skirt burying her thighs,

and topographical maps printed

on the insides of her wrists,

her elbows, the hollow of her throat,

(north, north, northwest, north),

she carries with her

skies that are wider than

the reach of her arms.
