Material Stories: Giraffe


I like to be a giraffe!
I’ll be able to look across all walls,
I’ll be able to put all space in a wise gaze,
I’ll be able to walk slowly when all people run.
If my feet were longer, I couldn’t see myself;
I would see only large space and like another…
But I cannot be a giraffe!
because I feel wonderful when I talk
I talk…and I talk …and I talk again…
I’m not really sure what language I’m speaking…
None one answers me!
And my words are transformed to howls,
And my voice gets louder if nobody can hear me.
Maybe …o yes!
Look….I’m only an imposing giraffe.
