Deborah Hazler

For Inge, From Deborah


I watched your work.

            How do you see yourself?


I saw strong daring simplicity.

            Do you see yourself for who you are?


I watched something delicate with soft angles.

Do you have to see your body, to know that you are there?


I heard the squeaking hinges of a door.

            How can we deal with the world outside?


I saw familiar shapes that you made unique in your body.

            Do you think there are patterns in your body that you aren’t aware of yet?


I saw a small body in a small space, perhaps wishing that the walls of protection were much further away.

            Can the wind take you somewhere you have never been?


I watched your hands tremble and your neck and your face turn slightly red.

            Which do you prefer?


I saw you lying on the floor - face down and still for a longer moment.

            Is there always the struggle of letting go and being in control?


I saw you watching yourself dancing on a video screen.

            Do you think we sometimes make things harder for ourselves?


I watched your hands and arms dancing together.

            Can familiar partners still surprise each other?


I watched you reflecting on your body.

I saw my reflection in your body.
