Awaiting

It's the two year anniversary of the collapse of the I-35 Bridge. When I drove to the Metrodome the other day I saw an odd assortment of debris carefully laid out along the river. I went back today, with Theo in tow, to take some photos of it. I believe these beams are from the bridge that collapsed two years ago; they are just downriver of that site.





























The light wasn't right, but here are the photos. I'm struck by how carefully each piece is laid out. They are like puzzle pieces obsessively laid out before reconstruction, or perhaps a set of tools waiting to be used. Actually, they are probably pieces of the body carefully laid out after the autopsy, awaiting understanding.
