THREE NEW CURIOS OF MINE
‘My Three Blind Mice’
Mouse skeleton found in a church basement, Mummified mouse, Mouse pelt.
it’s funny (and a little bit sad) that humans do whatever we can to make sure we don’t find each other like this. how we go out of our way to keep nature from doing what it wants with our remains. nobody would ever leave a human in their true final resting place, you know? we feel like we have to move each other around a lot after death, like it’s something we have to adjust to our way of life. instead of letting nature bury us wherever we fell. but really, grass and pine trees are a grave i wouldn’t mind.
