Discarded

A Discarded Glove and Sandal

Discarded

What we discard
conveys much about
what we truly love.

To discard mattresses
speaks to a love of
mattresses more than a
love of resting.

To discard shoes
speaks to a love of
shoes more than a
love of walking.

To discard gloves
speaks to a love of
gloves more than a
love of holding.

When we discard
people—for being
too old, too weak,
too sick—that
speaks to a love
of oneself at the
expense of what it
means to be human.
