Dual Monitors with Sound

MFA Interim Exhibition:
Platform Arts, 2018

Photographs Courtesy of Paul Marshall

Distant tribesmen bore the corpse away
The stomach slit and stuffed with marsh plants
Frankincense and parsley
Concubine, cook and cupbearer strangled
Horses slaughtered
A casual collective death
Under a barrow of earth

The walking ashes and talking dust
Had no such burial ground
No cenotaphs or monumental spaces equal to the task
Instead a lead sarcophagus
Built to last a hundred years
Interred the fragments of a flagless nation
Erased from every map
