Ice Watch

London is lucky
it's got money
Olafur isn't humble
from Nuup Kangerlua fjord
he fished out ice blocks
put them in a container
shipped them like frozen logs

Watch a sky blue glacier
listen to popping sound of air
trapped, thousands of years
come face to face
smell nose to nose
touch hand to hand
taste tongue to tongue
grasp what's like
to be
a piece of
ice milliennia
