I. Breezing

It comes. It moves most days
From the south: sauntering— seeping— cooling

Bricks radiate, light filters, fabric loosens
cells relieve, one by one

The skin of the bricks,
One on top of the other

Years of sitting, until heat fractures
Human non human being

“The last time I saw Kate Moss she was not yet a poet, but already a wizened student of rhythm. Then she found words and built the structure that supports her material art practice. Today she makes sculptures out of paper. Cut out paintings out of intellectual spills. She casts shadows that leave an impermanent record, refracts light from suspended hanging shapes casting chaos out of the play between movement and stillness. The most refreshing bit is what she does with verbs. Each one floats from one position to another breezing, cooling and soothing. In this body of work Kate Moss fractions her day into colors and textures as time measures piecing an alcove of sound for herself where she can pick flowers with the memory of lost loved ones, cook meals for her daughter, works with art students and melt bronze into everlasting shapes.”
