Delft. impressions of a gathering
Jane Anderson wrote a poem about her impressions of the Writingplace conference. She presented her paper “Fabrication of the Story Museum” with Colin Priest in the Rescription Session, November 26.
Flat white light
Enters from the side
Coating us in a ceramic glaze.
Fifty figures held together in a room, listening
Connected by words –
The thoughts on each face sculpted, manifest.
Words are cast, becoming architecture.
Looking back at the window I see
It compress the eroded sediments of the world
Until it becomes dense and plate-flat.
Jane Anderson, Oxford. January 2014.
