Sebastian

Ancient Egypt
One brick at a time
On the corner of East Adams and Compton
Sebastian brings a wooden box wrapped in a dirty plastic bag
Dug up his dead goldfish
To put inside the pyramid
What we find is an orange dot surrounded by intricate cobwebs
Sebastian lost his father at the age of 5
He tried stealing from 711
Shot by police at 23
Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Sebastian dedicates his mourning box to his father
Adds a mechanical fountain
Surrounded by photographs of a young man wearing an Anaheim Angels shirt
Plants growing out of cardboard
On the back wall, an empty plaque standing in for his father’s name
