Hymn to Al13 /Earth Crust Angel 

A speculative tribute to the Earth's Crust and Aluminum thefts at Coop in Gamlestan, Gothenburg.


One day I will write a story
about The Earth Crust Angel
who fell into Invisible Sleep
and dreamt she had transformed

to Cans and Phones, Computers and Beads

addicted to a display of Heroine Scenes


One day I will let you know that

Chthulufish came to town and told me that

The Reversed Black Hole was connected to the ground

and how The Fossil Hunter said Thats a lie!

Pointed at my left hand eye while looking at

the gradient sky


One day I will tell you
why some flowers shines better at night

and how Miss Hyde is unaltered shy,
yet user-friendly she must try to be

when questions are raised
smiley with your key


One day I will write you a lie

saying I did my best, I really tried


But while there still is time
I am telling you a story

about The Earth Crust Angel
who is no more to be seen


But when she wakes up from Invisible Sleep

you will respond to her politely with

Good afternoon, glad we finally meet!

I am an artifact (times) all the people

I am an artifact x all Tuesdays
I am an artifact x all nameless ideas

I am an artifact x mine and yours

I am an artifact x all Likes
I am an artifact x do you want more
I am an an artifact x heminredningsdetalj

(home accessories)


Jag är en artefakt (gånger) alla människor

Jag är en artefakt x alla tisdagar
Jag är en artefakt x alla namnlösa idéer

Jag är en artefakt x min och din
Jag är en artefakt x alla gillar
Jag är en artefakt x vill du ha mer
Jag är en artefakt x heminredningsdetalj (hemtillbehör)




I tried my best to make pollution look good, again
