Another concrete part is knocked, bashed, chipped and it goes too
far too far
a craggy end falls and a craggy lump is left
They still bear the semblance of their roundness, two body parts but with damage
A piece of rescued multi coloured foam from the upholsterers skip. It is a tightly compacted wedge, so hard it has lost all its ‘give’ and its comforting softness. With my scalpel I cut into the centre. I pick out a rounded shape, a mould to cradle the two craggy leftovers. They sit side by side on the grey floor.
An old settee cover full of white feathers rescued from the upholsterers skip. They are wayward and difficult to control refusing to stay in a piled up heap. With my hands I scoop and gather and place the craggy leftovers close to the feathery mound. Dare I breathe? They sit side by side on the grey floor.
