cruise n’ fix

i do remember the person who posed for this:  she reminded me of an old car put back together after time broke or weakened parts. time undoes us – all of us, minute by minute, day after day, while we are sleeping or laughing or crying.

i feel for her. i feel she forgot she’s a being and started thinking she’s a thing. she’s not a thing to fix, she’s a being to experience.

the crucifix seemed truly relevant as the hard edges of her repairs bumped up against the right angles of the cross and the deep and persistent longing that is her spiritual hope.

something i am grateful for:  i can wait quietly in the corner over here while someone prays to a god i don’t necessarily perceive – and still hope deeply her prayer is heard, and answered.

the important thing is she wore her desire for something more around her neck, hanging down onto her chest, where it met with her delicate skin.  only she knows if that contact induced warmth, a chill or any weight at all.  only she knows why she wears such a thing while her quest to fix focuses on the clay – bleached, teased, augmented, buffed, fitted, fixed – she calls home.
