“Angels and crows passed
                   each other,                                                                                                 kutta

                   one leaving,

               the other coming”
                                - Jerry Spinelli

                                                                                                                               age, morphed so far that it is almost unrecognisable. The body is made up of recycled

                                                                                                                               Wearing the mask of the Plague Doctor, it still attempts to protect itself from the world

                                                                                                                                                        around its feet, its flock of nestlings.
