Fast Day 358 April 26 2014 Iron Market In Haiti
Iron Market in Haiti
"As far from heaven as Haiti", the saying goes.
Yet all around the Iron Market in
Port-au-Prince finds Piere Barra, scultptor,
lace, straw, steel, plastic; forlorn objects lost;
sometime thrown away by the Maîtres,
Masters of consumption,
who ejected them from Eden.
Dentelle, plastique, des épingles, coraux,
os, bois, ivoire, et noyaux.
translation last 2 lines:
lace, plastic, pins, coral
bone, wood, ivory, and nuts.
