A pearl. First it is extracted. Next it is cleaned, and then opened, taken into a warm moist embrace… and admired. Further on a hole is made in it and the pearl is hung around the neck. Time passes. Autumn, winter, spring, summer! The pearl grows dim.

  • It is taken off and put somewhere out of sight as it has been got used to.(it is already taken for granted)
  • The pearl is lying and thinking “When will I be worn again? It is so cold in here, I want to feel warm and rub against the human body. Why have I been taken out of the embrace of my previous house? I wish they let me go back. Oh!”
