European Commission, London, July 2013
Text performed by two speakers
Field wide growing from within
Flesh of a borderline.
Line, linear, drawn in the sand.
Grids of interference.
We are the many.
The individuals that value and shape pliant, malleable forms.
We are between sarcous territories, sliding one into the other.
Founders, illuminating corroborators.
Logos pressed into service.
Waving meaning dynamically.
open source prophets.
You are not a slave. You have a disinterested sense free will.
Power is ambivalent.
I disregard your adoration, your willingness.
Ideology as bedazzlement, as seduction.
lips apart, resistance relaxed.
Behind our bed there were all
the dead parts of us.
Hair, skin. We left your boxes there.
You present a dislocated sense irrationality.
I present areas of natural beauty
Entwined logistical states of authority
Borderlines play mind games.
Why do you find it so hard to commit to things?
An exchange of one thing for another.
To be offered for sale
To shop or buy regularly
To pass back and forth:
To surrender or sell.
We are plentiful wretches
Fragile enclaves surrounded by folds of flesh
Apart from the border land.
Take it on your tongue and suck.
The sweet limbo between your recesses and the open air.
I put it there between your teeth and jaw.
Landmass stretched tightly over
a smooth lip of an interference.
Toenails curled over the edge of a freehold.
She was rubbing a hand over the stubborn flesh of her lower abdomen.
Organization of flesh of nation state
Blow air into my mouth while I suck.
I engage regularly in open dialogue with stakeholders
You present rich ducts of resources,
We were 4 real.
Pillage this opportunity.
Your cultural instincts are correct.
Somnolent in aesthetically pleasing and laboured formations.
Trust is essential, an agreement was reached.
Without any attempt to limit the sovereignty which she enjoys in common with all other free nations.
Dust was caught in their raw throats.
We just grew apart,
I don't need you anymore.
Respond effectively to challenges,
Facilitate better co-operation
The limits of the frontier, a cadaver divided into discordant provinces.
She proved herself an asset to the company.
Apart from the land border
Bloated and alienate
Networks of flesh
Negotiations were put on hold.
