Chase Wilson
Turtle in the Rug

December 12, 8pm





- a bad ode in plain speech -
To the garage...

The surface of this place is a place you'll know.

A place to travel to after travelling.
A place that is quiet and rattles.
Where a family of pits lives on the black floor-
Maybe to attack, but not too much, or to touch.

A place with unlearned moments cohering
With L.A. plants dying as Bosch-like tower-symbols
With spiders who dont talk
And multiple engines braced.

Here - time is made for fact-feeling
In piles of scraps for cultivation.
While in this zone for resting machines.
Some are resting - while some are flesh-collecting some where else.

Keep track of the rise and fall through our seasons
Experience movement for a while.
We are hard steel in the shape of a body-
And well trained.

--- Chase Wilson
