Friday, October 23, 2009: Materialicious--Ecolodge in Egypt

Sand, Snow

Sand kneaded with saltwater
and scooped with a bucket

keeps its shape when overturned.
It will crumble if it dries,

and will fall once again into sand,
knocked loose of all tension.

The inverse of sand is snow.
Snow will also respond well

to condensing, to being packed
in a gloved grip to temporary solidity.

Sand, snow--kick it, throw it,
build with it. Use it to destroy

or assemble. It will regenerate,
smithereens of lost water or ground.
