I don’t care what you think (I do, please like me)

Through botanical affinities this work extends a previous series, Please Leave Me Here.
Both bodies of work
explore neuroqueer embodiment and alienation; immersed in an unfolding rewriting, poisonous botanicals, and material (dis)connections. I am trapped in this body (I’ve never felt within it)

I’m still just a poor kid from Elizabeth (trying to prove I am worthy)

I can’t see a way through (I see everything)

I want you to hold me (please don’t touch me)

I know I ruin everything (you don’t need to tell me)
