Grief is a book you can neither open nor close. The text runs through the pages like a work through an apple and reads, “Around and around and around. This cage is mostly air.”
It spins like a top and the wires spiral the way damaging thoughts gain purchase in your head and won’t let go.

This is an engineered accordion with architectural drawings on the pages.
