My friend,
in a haze of post operative half consciousness,
has allowed me to decoupage her.
Digital decoupage.

Layers of meaning,
both stripped bare and concealed.
and eternal.

Before being admitted to hospital,  I asked Mayu to send me some images.
Images that hold an emotional resonance for her.

When she came out of surgery  I was there, and as we had agreed I projected these images onto her vulnerable, hopefully healing, body.
