'Energy is an attribute of objects'

by Lydia Harris

(Aja Couchois Duncan from ‘Fictive’)

at the instant when coils overlap,
and finger-tips dint the skin,
when orange ochre and red ochre swirl in a palette pot,
when cordons converge, slash straight lines,
when the antler tip in my hand gouges the clay.
