Straw (paja, palha, paille) is matter. It is a singular word but which carries collective in its importance and functionality. It is a transient, emotional, migrating and even an omnipresent matter. The straw material encompasses human being in the shape of a house or ceiling, or winds out our sweats as fans in humid environments. Straw also protects us from the sun in the shape of a hat. It can turn into rapid fire and expand. It inhabits the stomach of the cow, which eats and digests two it or three times. Straw is and is handled in different parts of the world, it is malleable, intense and discreet.
