prosthetics. faux bois. artificial limb. stumpy. peg leg. wooden leg.
pairs of wooden legs like detachable limbs. turning a sea of legs into a wood of limbs.
chameleon like, camouflage. enabling one to blend in to their surrounds and then peeled off like a discarded skin.
faux bois, tacky and fake, a woody façade. fashionably kitsch, false wood for a false leg.
norwegian wood like the cheap panelling found in cheap british flats. like the beatles song and the murakami book, which always remind me of the way girls used to hang their stockings up to dry in the bathroom after being washed. and the way one would undo their prosthetic before going to bed.
apparently, when paul mccartney was married to heather mills, the dog would sleep on the floor next to the bed on paul’s side, and heather’s false leg would sleep on hers.
