Prose Poem

Untitled

The mountain trembled to its very base, and the rock rocked. I threw myself upon my face, and clung to the scant herbage in an excess of nervous agitation.

Because the Earth is in free fall around the sun, it actually weighs nothing. The same goes for astronauts in orbit; because they are technically falling around the Earth — and if they stood on a scale, it, too, would be falling — the scale would read zero. There's no net force of gravity acting on them.

The ordinary accounts of this vortex had by no means prepared me for what I saw

an exuberant, dizzying and exhausting flight through the course of Western civilization, peppered with political observations.

At its conclusion, as the audience chants in a circle surrounding a peace sign of sorts, Ms. Malina sits on a folding chair at the side, exalting through a microphone “the nonviolent anarchist revolution” to come. Walking the premises afterward, this imperious artist tended her audience and largely young, 20-odd cast members. This aging lioness still nurtures her cubs and lets loose a formidable roar.
