Bones

Funeral No.7

Bones that are extensions of my body, rocks that break my socks, grow my legs, bruise my skin. A balloon is held in my mouth and blown at the same time the legs grow. The action changes when the balloon breaks free from my mouth.

Back then I didn’t mention Alexander Mora's name. His bone was one of those found in a rubbish bag in the stream. Experts from a laboratory at the University of Innsbruck in Austria said DNA recovered from the burned bone had been matched to that taken from relatives of the student. The attorney general used the matching data of Mora's piece of bone to prove his "historical truth" .
