what’s your poison?

Mucking about near the old dynamite shack today. It’s January and the forest oozes out to sea, fibres of cedar and spruce and a fern and moss inebriated in January rain. Awash in it all are tens of thousands of bottles – once containing alcohol and medicine and maybe even water, who knows? They’re drunk, too. Scraps of porcelain or humbler crockery, and casings for headlights, oyster shells and a shoe beyond recognition.

You, made from soda mixed with sand, are blown into this shape that becomes your personality, your whole life to serve a single purpose, be filled and emptied. Vessels to accompany a hand, commune with a cup, deliver a poison, a promise, or get tossed aside.

You’re like this rainwater carrying off this forest, you’re invisible.
