The Span (In Memory of Nancy Holt)

             Start with
a map, a sheet
                    of paper

                         Thinking         
             is site-specific

+

Glare rusting air—

        the sightline
                            disrupted

“I remember

                     the quarry”

                                             a blank

+

The color of rock
            —the color of decay

Perception’s
            a process

+

Sky mound
            at the bottom

of the hill
            a swamp

+

A parking lot—
degrees of torpor

                   Day’s figurations
           fall slack
                   over asphalt

+

Broken glass                  horizon
