"this is my work, its a fingerprint, i've been barricaded into a room but
managed to slip it out through a crack under the door, it's a message in a
bottle caught in returning currents, a child on a desert island discovering
these footprints are her own, its ingrown and corrupt with a terrifying
impermanence and therefore safely beyond a critique, it asks everybody's else's
opinion whilst ignoring its own motion and knowing, it's feet are bound and
hobbled but i did the binding, she chooses her reflection in incarceration
because she knows she could have the sky, it blames itself for blaming and
chooses for herself a violent lover, the auditory is fractured and whispering in
the blindspot, torrential downpour and splintered broken water, she is in
another room, inches and a world away, some collaborated and chose to stay the
night so she fights me using his hands to throw the punches, i wash her face and
hands and eventually sing her to sleep".
