they should turn my body into glass. not a sculpture. it shouldn't be like my body. it should be a monolith, a smooth transparent block. it would be cool to the touch. it could refract the light that passes through it, but only in the corners where the edges meet, razor sharp. it would be precise and and very beautiful. it would amplify the texture of everything around it,

the threads of cotton or the pressings of plastic would rest on the surface and the nature of craft would become so

and as you looked through me, things on the other side would appear exactly as they are, and they would dance and shimmer like they always do.
