Project
Degeneration”  What is the labor of decay within the body. The displacement of flesh as mud and dirt. Displaying the shame of struggle. One trap leads to another. The body as house crumbles at it’s joints. Your weight’s worth in clay. The weight of the enduring. A loss of functioning provides evidence of lacking order. The more you push the more it crumbles.
