Always (turn sound on and press play to hear)
glass + wax, found objects 11" x 14" (sound: artists' footsteps through Cheekwood with Dowton Abbey theme song + Glass Animals Gooey remix)
You looked at me with that certain knowing,
Like we had shared memories or inside secrets
Or were friends with the same people,
even though it was our eyes’ first meeting.
I touched your arm and the feeling of always ran through my fingertips
to my cheeks…and heart
in one electric beat.
Like coming alive
when returned to my other half
though this was just our beginning.
So, we turn the corner with certainty,
hands held in familiar fashion,
walking from what always has been
through what now is
into what always will be.
