in a haze of post operative half consciousness,
has allowed me to decoupage her.
Layers of meaning,
both stripped bare and concealed.
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.
