MANATEE

1989/5/12, revised 1992; nondream poster-meditation on beauty/ugliness, mermaids/manatees, by Wayan

Beauty's link to status and privilege bothers me. Beauty's a shadow economy, in which attractive people, creatures, trees, flowers, even rocks or landforms are designated "rich" in beauty, and get perks (or parks)... while the rest of us uglies, including manatees, get eaten, beaten, paved, enslaved... or just run down.

Mermaids aid a manatee cut by a propeller; digital sketch by Wayan. Click to enlarge.
