The Beauty in scuffproof things


Derelicts, depots, dumps.
Scrap, crap, garbage.
Chucked away, ditched, charred up, plunged. And easily replaced.
But what’s not gonna be needed anymore though:
That’s the treasure chest of Carola Schaffner.
Disused parachutes puff out as wind cheaters –
Weight drifts to zero.
Dumped fire brigade pipes curl up around the waist as belts do –
Lifelong resilient.
Yogourt mugs roar as racy ragtops into the wild –
Never again mind about parking fees.
And so on – you’re only one fresh and cheeky click away.
Other materials are slumbering in the studio.
