By Frances Barbe
A person is buried in a wall.
S/he becomes an insect.
The internal organs are parched and dry.
The insect is dancing on a thin sheet of paper.
The insect tries to hold falling particles from its own body,
And dances, making rustling noises.
The insect becomes a person, who is wandering around,
So fragile, s/he could crumble at the slightest touch.
➤ Come to stillness. . . . And finish.
