Strathearn Paperweight (Scotland). Jessica Lee McMillan © 2021

I’ll just come back as a paperweight of dense phantom glass, a universe convex hugging the walls in the lens of time, the objet d’art with heft and voluptuous gravity inert and steadfast with the weight of intent to war with the wind

I’ll halt obsolescence, and pin fugitive pieces with blunt fist the heart leans on tissue stratum, reams of pressed words in a copulation of text under the blown crystal glass I’ll be a millefiori dance in the weight of mosaic and paragraph
