PROJECT REBUILD


PREVIOUS TENANTS

Why so special Vancouver?

Can we accept it's murder living everywhere?

Forgo the unique response

How can not want to "live in beauty?"

The cutter sees the beauty in the henna wound.
The glitter-bomber sees the beauty in the homophobe's flip-flop.
Before the killing is the cataloging of life.

These are unique attempts at poignancy.

I am keeping my family in the future
where you can't kill them

but that's a lie!

They waiting to be touched.
