A Shell like a Wrap

S h e like H e

Unwrapping like skinning

De-veloping like un-veiling

One shell after the other

Shells are skins

Shedding one skin after the other

De-veloping and en-veloping and unwrapping and skinning

The repressed neglected wasted withered forgotten

dilapidated missed disguised hated contorted buried

immersed displaced bewitched deformed misaligned flattened

blown away desolate frozen closed glued hidden

torn apart obstructed dried out transgressed anchored inverted

knotted concealed damned devastated pensive diluted

darkened widened



—Heidi Bucher, 1983
