To Margo Solod's previous piece
Bodies In Motion, At Rest She sleeps with a man who once carried the mummified body of a 15-year-old girl down a Peruvian mountain, bore the 500-year old body down strapped to his back. She sleeps, and dreams of his mountain. Her days spent painting murals of grapevines and sunflowers, private gardens on walls, her hands covered with forest, umber, scarlet, colors that come from the earth he digs. At night she dreams of planting her hands in the clean soil of his mountains. He carried a 500-year-old girl down a Peruvian mountain, his fingers growing numb, frostbitten, tears down his cheeks. Carried her down on his back, her skin the color of the earth he dug her from, he brushed centuries from her, removed her from the cradle of her mountain. He sleeps with a woman who paints gardens, but he dreams of planting 15-year-old girl seeds deep in other mountains.
