B-body

"My B-body" is a project I created during home quarantine. It is based on a poem I wrote about the relationship between my physical body and my consciousness. The text of the poem reads:

My B-body

My body doesn’t belong to me

It wants to come apart
It wants me to pay attention
It wants to bend the other way
It wants to run away while I’m sleeping

It wants to live a different life
It screams at me and won’t shut up

It wants to return to nature
