Mattias Monde

Why are we digging up all these old bones
from fields, rocky ledges, mounds, temples;
anywhere fine quality antiquities are sold?
Are we trying to understand our ancestors; 
how they evolved us from tree to field to 
brain to speech to agriculture to fine art? 
We dig and analyze pollen and coprolites;
Today shit provides most of our knowledge.

Mattias Monde’s work has appeared, or is soon to appear, in Pavement Saw, Unirod, Limestone, Chance, Second Revolution, Eratio, and Flashes of Brilliance, among others. After traveling for the past five years through Africa, Asia, and Europe he may now be found in Bangkok, Thailand.
