Tamara Chatterjee<br />

Uzbekistan (November, 2019) – I stood in<br />

the middle of the mausoleum for a long time,<br />

taking in as many different turquoise shapes<br />

as possible. It was the second visit to Shah-i-<br />

Zinda, the light completely different from the<br />

sunny skies from a few days prior. It provided<br />

a different kind of light cast against the<br />

mesmerizing monochromatic domed interior.

Dandelions, approximate to love<br />

“an oblivial force dwells within that reminds us daily…”--Rick Harsch<br />

And slow the stories dismounted the handles of our verbs<br />

tongues wagged wayward toward a star anise sky,<br />

a collapsing algebra along the escarpment’s frozen Niagara night<br />

there we fell away, once<br />

a renegade March where a herd of shadows stood up in the light<br />

dream plunged through a sinkhole of flight,<br />

clusters of color cracked, no matter the cold<br />

and we were floral<br />

medallions of dandelions bruising with song and woodwind long ago<br />

he a young boy as his father wiggled him through the city<br />

she nuance laying along the hips of the sloppy Hudson<br />

together they pulled at birds flocking in their hands<br />

weeds peonied steel roses ivying up the walls along Christopher Street<br />

when a father tugged the child kicking up cans along the Village’s gateway<br />

brothers’ gangfilled love and legends curlyhaired echoed on the fire escape<br />

love’s labor later tossed along the hips of a sloppy Hudson<br />

the mudbanks upstate in the valley<br />

and bricks bloomed and pollinated lore through a thin stem of meaning.

let the worldworld behold<br />

let the dreamdream inhale<br />

let the oblivial force dwell in the understory<br />

a photograph’s thought faded from the image and dogeared<br />

twice the terrain unbuttoned from underneath<br />

the horizon a finger of wet chicory<br />

along the sea trees taught flowers to stone<br />

the land fecund with opossum and beetle bone<br />

a heart left behind in a rusted octagon box<br />

cicada shells exhaled into the side of a tree, a thumbprint of time<br />

and the tempo rescued from the lumber, sand and swamp.<br />

The frozen stories we shared beneath the falling water<br />

the thawing dandelions of yesterdays’ goodbyes<br />

the clockwork of your morse code along my wrist<br />

the takeaways and the somedays and the bend in the river, once<br />

the reverie and the recounting<br />

the soil and the songs<br />

the lives an error approximate to love<br />

as we carried history in small thimbles of cinnamon<br />

the pollen dust of the tillage kicked up by boots<br />

the crimson and the leaves oar-rot black over which stepped a journey<br />

and your measure unflagging, the flair once pedaling along the sky’s dresswork.<br />

My love,<br />

to this day we step lightly over flowerbeds of cast away giants’ and Goliath’s bones<br />

a graveyard of lost fables, the gossamer map of things<br />

and with the weight of a coin in our palm<br />

loss lead us home to our watery selves<br />

together and at last alone, we remain long in this world.<br />

for 4 lights on the horizon: Wan-Lin Yang, Mai Huyen Chi, Chiwan Choi and Natashia Deon,<br />

On Jul 25, 2020, for the first time since the end of confinement, Mehdi Kerkouche<br />

invited Nicolas Huchard, Sami Blond and Jordan Joaquim Oliveira to join the<br />

company for a unique performance under the initiative of Espacio Abierto Quinta<br />

de los Molinos. The 4 dancers met for the first time in a neutral space, sharing the<br />

emotions and feelings that the crisis of the last few months has caused in everyone.
