‘and last is the light
filtered through ice,
                               seepage
in the walls
of a primal
shelter:
invasive and defining,
lucent,
            a  blue
                       watermark,
a survival:
 
so build us a home of it,
make it soil; the light
of home,
           ‘HOMELIGHT’
a cold pressing
                        onto paper
onto clay
               shaped,
            fired.’
