Perfumed like a pit of decaying fruit, an orchid shapes its petals as a voluptuous insect. It’s time to make love. Representing is re-making. In the construction of fly fishing lures, it isn’t important to mimic the shape of the bug, but rather to accentuate its effects. Recognition is a flapping. He looks nothing like me, he thinks. Bearded, short, freckled skin… he stinks nothing like me. I turn his face around in my head like a ball of wet clay. Like a butter cat. The study was a disaster until they realized that sheep were perfectly good at recognizing the faces of other sheep. The Contourtionists: She don’t respect linear boundaries. He don’t respect faces and names. It don’t live, it represents. You don’t see me, just my dusty freckled cloud. Because color is isn’t a form, and landscape is isn’t a body and architecture is isn’t drunk. And my whiskers are a sensual tool.
