Droplets of warm sweat run down my glowing forehead.
After 3 hours of heavy lifting I glance over to the vertical cardboard formations
now inhabiting my otherwise empty hallway. Quite a challenge for my lower ribs.
The boxes function as shells.
Hollow units that contain, conceal and unify.
Cardboard, sellotape, packing peanuts, foam.
Keep the pearl safe.
Non-materials of the in-between.
Fridge, urn, airplane, museum.
Ensure safety and integrity of the product.
A to B.
All of a sudden - I’m spinning. Light headed & dry mouthed…
I settle down on one of the cardboard towers. I’m the oversized gargoyle to this Gothic
church, waiting for water to hydrate my throat.
