In response to Number (13) of the Death Project for FVP:
(13) Turning “normal” life into Spiritual (Death-Related) Life: An Example of When and How you Did this With Death Connection.

When I was a kid,
young
during the times
of Imaginary Friend
I made Myself
into a snail
using large cushions
of the living room
suppose to be for against the wall seating without too much
discomfort
nearby
was a bar with several cabinets, and a cozy space of bar space
the cushions and I made our way to the bar we crawled along in a peculiar method
something like if not exact of a snail
then we opened the bar doors or cabinets near its exit/entrance
to create a block to the
Outside Living Room World
This was or become our on/off Snail HideOut
We went out for Nourishment
But in terms of Comforter there was nothing close this
was my pre-heaven or non heaven
comforter experience
later we learned that Snails
had uh something to do with death
Not too much later,
or perhaps much later,
the two owners of the house
had rapid in succession deaths
from debilitating killing illnesses
the illness didn’t last long in their knowledge,
and the death was rapid
we were all shaken
to the core of
this Earth
had I known what the snail symbolized then
what shelter meant in a house that wasn’t mine
at such a young age
of precarious-ness
maybe I wood of the cabinets
chosen another symbol
for my play safety exercises invented by me
but I was at most
seven
if even that
my stay there so brief less
than a lease on two years
