BLURB

I could be endlessly talking about how I got here. That I was the best of the bests and more invisible than air. That I was the real chameleon man and I could turn nothing into everything and everything into nothing. I could be talking about my upbringing in a circus with clowns, acrobats and jugglers as my family. And I could talk about a foolish mistake that turned me into white and blue… and made me an eternal yet symbolic object. Objects that I thought I could blend into, but instead I became the mosaic they were. Take me one by one for I am no more the one and only you’ve cherished. What is a body? I forgot a long time ago. When they admire the soul for it is something they hope that exists under the vulnerable skin, they all fear they live without one. But by ignoring the evidence of life they ignore the possibility of a soul that’s far more fragile than what they wish it to be. It has been before our eyes, the engine of living or the living flesh itself. And it’s bewitched and trapped into its own existence.
