Emmi Venna: Fabulous Muscles
I caress myself. I cry, I speak to my bones and joints.
I return to the same things year after year after year. I am full of parasites.
I embrace the space. I use my muscles and nervous system to stretch time. I think about an animation that stretches, exaggerates its being.
I melt my brain down to a warm mass and let it slip down my throat. One by one, I forget the bones, muscles, internal organs, and skin. I’m a container within a container within a container.
I open up every nook, cranny, and recess. Could I be more visible now than I have ever been before? Could everything emanate through?
