The House

The House book cover

The House is a long prose poem inspired by a New York performance in 1975 or 1976 by Meredith Monk and her ensemble The House. Some of the images were inspired by the California house I grew up in, which had many marvelous features, though not quite as marvelous as those in the House house. My late dear friend Dina von Zweck sent me some of her little dream drawings, which are included here.
