even small things break (into smaller things) Freida Abtan

for mark

This piece was written after a difficult operation to document the ensuing darkness. Many of the sounds used reference physical turmoil and disorientation. The sounds are gutteral, and meant to evoke a visceral response.

The transformation of a physical body is a solid reminder that everything must die. No matter how tiny, beautiful things are apt to disintegrate. Accepting this is part of understanding the nature of beauty. It is also the process by which change can be embraced.
