I met a minotaur ten years ago.
My sister taught me that you can make your body a hole, and remarkably, repair it again.
My dad lives in the desert inventing imaginary non-profits in his underwear, yelling at my mom for giving him less spaghetti sauce than he deserves.
America ate my dad and my sister. Or they ate it and shit it out. Or it shit them out. That's why I make art. To eat it. Let it eat me. Shit myself out. To make the minotaur's art. Let it shit me out.
I build gestures to reduce our mythologyÐin the hope of emancipating it.
