A Room of One’s Own

“Alas, laid on the grass how small, how insignificant this thought of mine looked; the sort of
fish that a good fisherman puts back into the water so that it may grow fatter and be one day
worth cooking and eating.” (Woolf, 2014 (1928), p. 4)

In pursuit of a place to be on my own, &
Still close-by my home(-town),
I wander, I stand still, I kneel, I turn on my heels,
And soon
I mimic
A mimography
In a Room of One’s Own

Sometimes I follow the daily routes and routines that pass by my window.
Some (in)visible traces, laid out by all kinds of visiting bodies, remain unnoticed, others find a
place in a corner.

I will reside in the Orangerie, a Room of Glass, to see through One’s Own.
