"the Pearman" the pears of Limburg hanging from his chest

breasts of unfulfilled love or bankers' bags weigh him down 

he droops MASSIVE

he was pulled in circles around the church in St. Truiden

by workhorses with brass buckles, he wobbled would he topple?

dust is in movement and rain can kill this hefty softy
