Relic of Blenheim
Assemblage of found objects
Reliquary for a toenail, quartz crystal, bird feet, cameo in gilt case
In jewellery box.
by Dale Copeland, 2016

Anyone who was there can tell the story.
A madly energetic two-day Taekwon-Do master class.
In Blenheim, a New Zealand South Island town.

All of us jumping up and down onto benches/steps/bleachers
(why are they called 'bleachers'?)
Then a Master on the floor. With the nail from his big toe. Separately.

Nurses tending the foot, students watching concerned,
and me exulting over my new treasure.
Isn't it beautiful?
