Cilice


Yup... the old factory has been closed down for years now.
Seems like no one needs their shirts in this country any more.



When they shut down the homeless scavenged the building for scrap metal
and some squatters moved in.


But the government was quick to evict them,
having designs to convert the factory to produce bullet proof vests.

I like the perspective you give me of looking up/in/at... and after the converted factory successfully manufactured the bullet proof vests the building would then, of course, be renovated and retrofitted as part of a revitalized downtown.Sigh...
nice minimalist power...walk a little, show a little, say a little...convey a lot. What you do...

thanks Harlequin... so glad that you don't feel caged in here...

as always

thanks for your thoughts

in our modern world... when love is being forced to be just sex, then this body needs no garment of repentance... it needs make-ups to show off and bullet proof vests to survive...
