Or a language on the brink? Crafting, repurposing, building forward, a gatherer? A listener? A dreamer? The one who can go all the way back. A body alone in a void. A mouth opening, and from it an impossible chorus.

She is the keeper of the history in a historical society, a hobbyist museum. Atmosphere is curated, things meant to be in drawers and behind glass, the Docent too is tagged, she is a relic among relics, all jumbled, spilling, tumbled. Body parts, bones, scalps, ears, tiny baby shoes, blood soaked? The sound is the sound in a vacuum sealed archive, of purified air- but echoes of groans, screams, cries, songs, whimpers, nurturing, and suffering. She is wearing a 1960's wool skirt suit, horn rimmed glasses and sensible heels. The Camera shifts from taking in all of her to her tag, and her disembodied parts- crime scene stye? Collage?

We’re understaffed. I’m in the process of doing an inventory, history has a tendency to fly off the shelves, resisting cabinetry, history untagged goes missing, jumps out at you from behind dark corners, I’m missing something… something is missing for me We have a union soldiers bible with a bullet shot clean through, a confederate chess set- planters vs slaves- not union vs confederate as you might expect- isn’t history fascinating?-white vs black, authentic buffalo china from real ground up buffalo bones, the nose of a noble Indian chief from that last stand with General Custer, and tiny moccasin and mummified foot from an actual papoose! Where is it? Where did get to- its a prized item in the collection, the beadwork is an extraordinary example of plains Indian… Oh dear (She holds up her hand, her ring finger is missing) I’ve lost my wedding ring… (There is blood) That won’t do It holds tremendous sentimental value And I had neglected to tag it- I didn’t think it was necessary, the provenance is obvious- How will I get it back? How will anyone know it’s mine? You! You! You are my witness- white gold band and an emerald- square cut, deco, classic, not gaudy, the emerald soft around the edgers- my mother in law washed dishes in it for decades, family heirloom, I’m lost without it, please. I can’t leave my collection, it would be a disaster- history screams for curation I remember, I remember, I carelessly flashed my hand in front of a homeless man, a man from nowhere, a nowhere man- he must be the one. (Holds up her bleeding hand) He’s the one, the wanderer, hairy, unkempt, no respect for sentiment, no idea of the preciousness of an heirloom, priceless, his meaningless hand to mouth existence Find him, find him, you’ll know the ring when you see it, it’s on my finger for god’s sake!
