have a heart

Sharing a moment with one tin soldier that didn’t ride away.

Edgar the little blue monster with the button eyes is sitting on the hand of a tin coloured statue.  Only the hand and the top part of the legs can be seen of the statue, all tin coloured.  The statue is of a soldier that is lying down.

I told him that I didn’t have a heart either but that didn’t matter, it will still get broken.   But it can still love, even if it doesn’t beat.

Edgar is sitting on the statue/sculpture Monument to the War of 1812 by Douglas Coupland, located outside a condo at Bathurst and Lawrence, near Fort York.

The standing soldier is painted gold and depicts a member of the 1813 Royal Newfoundland Regiment. The other is painted silver and depicts an American soldier from the 16th U.S. Infantry Regiment.

The monument is meant to be a scene from April 27, 1813, when U.S. troops overran Fort York, burned it and then left.
