Nude as Descent of Glass
amongst to have left your home, or
amidst to have been taken from it?
or: do you feel it necessary to etch your name on a window
or stand at the window in the darkness, pressing your body against it?
in what ways do you assert yourself? in what ways are things asserted upon us?
ﬁeld: necessary for work to be done, within it? atop it? above it?
house: necessary for leave to be taken, within it? within
tell me the last time you felt safe, the last time you laid in a ﬁeld without clothes on, the last time you walked home in the dark and could feel the night make you completely transparent. the last time you wore a skirt. the last time you pressed yourself against the window in a dark room? an illuminated room? the last time every eye was on you every single every eye was yours to take and you took them all?
that is all they do. they
ask me about myself.
