About the piece:
“This work is not about eating or corners.
It’s an investigation about something
that happened through an accident,

the anxious body and its affection.
And possibly about eating and corners.
I forgot to turn off my head last night.
We left traces in the car. And we fucked it up so bad.
But dear ocean, don't worry, I have lit the candles.”
