Visual verse: The weIght of Matter

A piece that I wrote, 'The Weight of Matter' is on Visual Verse. You can read it here. All the full stops seem to have fallen out of the text, so you shall just have to imagine that they are there.

Here's a little taster:

To my dear niece Clementine, 
Inside this trunk are the remains of my worldly goods; I could not decide what to keep or discard, so I am sending you everything. Albert says I must hurry, the airport taxi is due; we are leaving for China today. Strangely, I cannot bear the weight of matter anymore. I always considered myself a nostalgic hoarder, but I now see these objects as artificial limbs, a prosthetic fleshy armour....
