Flowers for Lucy
Oscar Miller

16th September - 6th October, 2017





Why is it the unsettling things that stay with us in grief
The life of someone is kept alive by those around them
and death
slows down urgency

I wish I could ask her what she thought about that
how she moves / occupies all available space
the bystander
mother
sister
home land

Air in suburbia
moves slowly like water

We sink into a partiality for flowers
and ageing decor
offers recline as its sole pleasure
the air is heavy
and I enjoy suburban leisure
