"Waterbearer," by Lorna Simpson
"there was too much for one person to do"
another one of my favotite artist Lorna Simpson
"the Stair Case"
"Her apartment was on the ground floor, which
meant she was in earshot of footsteps and
conversations. As the climbers or climber
reached the 10th step, there was a break in the
rhythm of the climbing, because its riser was
slightly lower than the rest. From her apartment
it sounded as though they had tripped,
especially those who were unfamiliar with this
inconsistency. She could hear the warnings
offered by tenants as they guided their guests
to their floor; particularly when they were
assisted in carrying something; the apologies
when they had forgotten to mention it in
time; or the conversations that took place in
midstream, that indicated the level of
familiarity between climbers. There were some
other sounds, not too long ago that seemed
to be coming from the landing below. They were
faint and unrecognizable. It did not sound
like talking, but more like the rhythmic lifting
of a heavy object.”
