Dispatches from the Boulder Flood

Sorrow Pile

Check out this heap of damaged private property that’s completely inundated the dumpsters in my apartment community. At first it was just rolls and rolls of soaking wet carpet, but now the pile is bigger and it has more interesting things in it. Someone added this great face canvas on to the end of it. I think it’s supposed to look like a caterpillar or a worm now. I don’t know if anyone is ever going to come take all of this stuff away. I don’t see how they could. At this point it’s just grown into an enormous and beautiful collaborative sculpture.
