I thought the weird thing about this scene was the way the grave marker was covered up. But what was even weirder is that the cover was made to fit the stone – a bespoke shroud, if you will.
Even bespoke shrouds need to be tied down around here – our spring winds can be fierce.
The helmet caught my eye – and it would have caught yours, too, I think – as it’s not a typical thing to spot in a cemetery.
Much sadness: Nathan Hooper was 27 years old when he died and had only been married about a year and a half; his safety helmet seems ironic.
We’ve all got to pee, and we’re all going to die. And it’s all right here, in the disturbingly-named Baby Head Cemetery.
