Creation’s desire to change
Absorbed, he sat under the cover of time, observing Creation’s desire to change: She was already bare at her hands and feet, but her torso was still covered, her face draped with impervious clothes that were winding like a fog- fabric around her hips, her neck, her face, and before one could think, she had already disappeared backstage.
He had a burning wish to see her as a whole. All too much he had heard and read about her well-proportioned measurements, the golden crotch and all. But he had also noticed for a long time, no one had actually reported any details. Everything was always hidden behind a cloud of befogged metaphors.
But now he wants to see her full beauty. Bare and without prejudice. He wants to know who helps her change her clothes. Which kind of fabrics she prefers.

What do you think, does this Kate Winslet look suit me? I feel like a million bucks in her proportions. You know that flick The Dress Maker? …“
