By Ai Weiwei: 2,046 items of clothing gathered from refugee camps in and around Idomeni, Greece. Washed, pressed, and hung with multicolored tags  in a large room wallpapered with refugee-related news headlines as well as photos by the artist.

Take a pic. Accidental gathers airlessness. Like gloves who.

Or pry these. Itemized canines open. Lord and my.
Mouth will praise. Fungible fever rather. Meat tins that.
Like us last. Carnivorous abstractedly counting. All oil left.

Pay for their. Puffy woven resoled. Chintz laced hued.
Plain dull drab. Polyester cotton rubber. Graphed knit crew.
Cut skin tight. Elastic never perforated. Blouse blown closed.
The wind’s raw. Adjectives tightening leeward. Throats of knock.
Off Uggs one. Slipper Adidas Converses. And boots buy.

My clutched as. Advertised homonymous misunderstandings. Ÿ
