Noxious chaps, discarded. Putrid to the point of marination. Representation of a
wall from a gay men's club. Could be anywhere, any country... They all seem to
look the same. Thoughts, observed: “Men, boys, teenagers, etc. come across
as mere fodder in comparison to Tom of Finland characters...” A pile of
household objects, abandoned. Pages torn from magazines, a toy baby, mass of
safety pins, yolk striped cushion, sit amongst all this. Coarse towelling collects
dust, clippings, hair, scraps in general. Things become laden with fur akin
to mould feasting on old fruit. Flannelette shirts, ripped from bodies.
Cloud-like stuffing, yanked from plush toys.
