The Germ
Abdallah Al Ruzzi
It is the pain which still lives in the darkness of our abysmal and still depths… It is a weeping sound that follows us everywhere we go… The danger is inside us, it lives and grows inside us, and it eats and eats and eats us… It is the germ of this age… a cancer eating up everything and living anywhere… it even eats up metal, and lives in the air… It was somewhat annoying, heavy, painful. I couldn’t make out its form, its colour, height, structure… I’ve never seen a germ in my entire life… But I wanted to visualise it for the world, and transform it into something we see and can touch… For it exists in our lives and amongst us… We only see its traces, in the night… after we fall asleep and it lies there somewhere inside us, without us even knowing it. It enters into our subconscious, and we begin to feel weighed down… We feel some unknown massive thing inside us, coming and going, and when we wake up we realise that it is pain.
