Dear Creature by Sarah Bitter a response to Lygia Clark’s Creature-Maquette 320 written on the 15th day of the Russian-Ukrainian War Your sweet metal head rests on the earth like a fawn left to sleep alone by its mother except your head is dented We are very far from the new war but today your metal hide is armor Bright yellow narcissus ring my garden as your pelt helplessly reflects the pink and brown of flesh
