For The New Disasters

When all that remains are memories of objects, and a longing for the functions they provided, which are indistinct, like a barely sensed dream after an early morning waking. 

Pulled from the heaps, cobbled into totems that feel essential, but whose purposes are hidden as much by waste as loss. Touch after touch hands know what they knew, making by instinct, differently familiar forms in search of their connection to human activity.

These are now in time for the new disasters.
