The Tide Rises at Christchurch Art Gallery

In-hee Lee, Repaired Daily Life

Janis Freegard

we stood too long in the washing waves

(the high-heeled shoes
the kettle
the giant apple
the bottle
the hat)

& were covered in silvery scales

afterwards we sat on the table
listening to gulls
while the wind toyed with the cloth

(the television
the cellphone
the bowl of artificial fruit
the pine cone
the glass)

as the film rolled our state altered:
we grew saltier

never quite dissolved
