Inspiration Piece

Lisa Nielsen


Swimming without water

my hips, unconfined celebrate
my thighs cradle lullabies
and my arms, orchestrate
a clever river with leftover tears

This is hopefulness after heartache has left
This is the blood rush of music to
This is what happens when
This is how
This is

Me waving good-bye
as you sneer on the corner
of misery and Duluth

    I am so thrilled with Lisa’s interpretation. Really makes me feel we “sparked”.

    Nice you two, I love the visual and the written piece. Nice. I am enjoying looking at them all!

    An amazing collaboration! I love the “hopefulness,” the celebration conveyed in both pieces.
