[response to “is interpretation about something else…”]
Because the land was besieged by the sea they built dikes and embankments so that they could hold onto what was theirs. The people altered the foundations and put porches on stilts and in some cases learned to live lopsided on slanty beachsides. They went uphill to the living room and downhill to the bedroom. Some people had to go downhill to the kitchen and uphill to the bathroom and tried to rotate their houses as if necklaces. They used staircases for firewood and this was how it was, fighting to fix themselves stationary. But I grew up there, and I wanted to live afloat, our house a seed that the wind of the sea would plant.
