Poetry Reading with 2015 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award-winner Angie Estes
The river chants, looks
like a thread you could
follow—incantation without motif, ‘music
on one’s knees,’ a Greek
dance performed right to
left, then left
to right, then stationary
before an altar….”
—Angie Estes, Dance of Ancient Knossos, 2005
