When fungi invade a plant, they draw food to its needy roots, and are supplied in turn with nourishment. While not weak, she may nevertheless be vulnerable, a woman yearning for a partner to share to the fullest the joys and challenges of life. Broken bottles, various boxes, brick, bits of a dental bridge, bronze, burlap, buttons.
