A collaboration with Yasmine Ganley from Anyonegirl and artist Ophelia King...
The art of dressing.
The art of undressing.
The art of being undressed;
not by a person, it is more a state that follows an action.
Let your hands travel the ridges, follow them and then hold onto your ledges.
These are the cliffs that will carry us.
Something old with a new gaze;
Like the dunes that your hills of hips have newly acquired.
That a lover says is their favourite part.
hips are for hands too, ours and our lovers
See it with feeling and without function;
Lie long and then twist,
notice as skin pulls tight.
Stretch and stand with a chin to the sky.
ephemeral imprints left behind
A vessel to reflect the blessings and never the curse;
Tense fists become splayed palms,
hunched necks roll up into pillars.
Breathing into the push pull.
The fallen lash that offers a wish.
a foreign flower limp
dressing, undressing, undressed.
