A Celebration Declaration for An Other LA
In the LA River by Fletcher Drive
We (John Burtle, Katie Bachler, Robby Herbst) built a bridge in the river. We made a web by declaring how it is that we participate in building another LA. When we all crossed to the island we read:
Another LA is
Crossing this island
Envisioning what we don’t know
Ready for the taking
Ready to share
Riot of species
Connection between you and I and we and us and they not reduced to barbarism but exploded by plenty and pleasure and trust and hard work and not going away and some pain and and and and and and and and
The sound of the freeway stalled river babbles
Floating plastic becomes flag
Tennis ball is baby rattle
Rattle is compost
Island Los Angeles
Metabolic Studios Public Salon Series
