Happy As Is

by on February 18, 2013 :: 0 comments

Hendrik Mogul lives in a box and is happy as is.

Natural, box-making materials are his horizon. The four corners give Hendrik direction and order.

Choices. Send a toe into the west corner, thinks Hendrik, and he has new ease.

The smells of Hendrik and of his box are the smells of home. As Hendrik hums, a lilting rhythm resounds off the walls of his box and buoys him up. As Hendrik breaks into a carol, the box agrees with him, his back-up choir and tabernacle. Hendrik hugs humanity.

He doesn’t bother people.
