every number

Rehearsal at Brown yesterday for the Virginia Tech pieces. 27 are going up; 5 families have requested their plays be withdrawn. One of the remaining: Austin Michelle Cloyd. This is from her Kuse in part one –


Every time numbers come together they sum to one

Every something is one thing

Every one thing is changing

The world is something changing into something else

Unafraid to fail

Sailing is the wind’s failure to elude

A soul by grace pursued

Water meaning transformation

Vowels are water vow vocation

“What may be” is jail for what we must do

No one, everyone together

I will be obedient to vowels, avowal, the athlete’s open frame
