The Books by David Rudolph

Public art on SFCC campus. My class on spiritual quest took a field trip to write about the sculpture:

books calving from the earth
as if from the abandoned library
of giants
like the soil itself
tilting as the planet
leans into winter solstice

barrancas or stepstairs
of hardbacks
a second hand bookstore
overturned in an earthquake
or a sculpture
on a spring day
students walk past
that we are each writing
our own version
