Keep Swimming

The task at hand is absurd—an entire forest needs to be dismantled, the bulk of three towns. We watch the quiet human forms in white hazmat suits, masks obscuring their faces, bent over their work filling ridiculously tiny white plastic bags with debris, sealed up with heavy blue tape laid out in rows. They are working near a small white tent with the word “asbestos'“ on it and move so deliberately through the ash that they appear to be studying the dangerous inflammable objects they have been sent to retrieve.
