my first wheat paste
toni was an old man in my tongan village
one day after painting the school library
i found myself at Toni’s house for a meal
my skin was covered in latex paint
as i ate, he sat next to me
dipping his thumb a bottle of tongan oil
gently scraping the paint off my arm
it was the most human moment of my life
this act of grooming
we are animals
meant to care for each other
so now i will put his face around this globe
everyone asked me he’s Einstein
maybe he is …
thanks to gaia for teaching me on this whole technique
