Mark Young

The Artist in Residence

Structure is easy. Bits
of board, the occasional nail, string
if nothing else comes
easily to hand. A centre post;
or strategic posts with a hole
for the smoke to escape
through. Palm fronds plaited
to form the roof. No manuals
necessary. Merely the human form
& a box to keep it in. Alive.
Optional windows. A necessary door.
