This is dedicated to the cast and production team of Normal, 2017, written by Faith Ng and Directed by Claire Wong. It was a pleasure having you share your secrets with me. This poem was also partially inspired by the documentary: Origami Code.
From a single sheet,
With every fold and crease.
The complexity of a plane
Holding secrets worth revealing,
Stay hidden in the folds.
Unwrap to find the simplicity,
But never un-creasing.
The damage left is permanent:
When splayed out, it is vulnerable
When shaped, it is beautiful.
