On Benches - 2022

Properties are as flexible 
as a bench
The name plate 
was made
By them, for them
and partly, for their people
as an act of self____ness

The image of this moment 
sits as a sediment of 
a frail little bottle
with a cork so stiff
Immobile time
will cease to 
list some
Important names
suddenly the bench
is someone’s estate
