the net stretches from end to end. behind it, another net
it is impossible to get anywhere
do we create it ourselves, do we fall into it, is there something that pulls us in?
can we break free from it, cut through it, reweave it?

where is the human being?
how to find humanity in a world of illusions and artificial needs where everything is for sale?
how to remain yourself in the midst of this? do we have to reinvent ourselves again and again
in a space that restricts passions, suppresses desires and feelings, fuels internal conflicts?
can we undergo a transformation?

I cannot separate myself from my body,
my body cannot separate itself from myself
the inside and outside are only divided by a flimsy layer
the poetry of epidermis
I want to feel with my body
I want to remember my pain and pleasure

the net of beginnings and ends exists in infinite forms,
in missed and taken opportunities
I want to recall my beginning. I want to remember

I want to jump and fall
I want to soar and die
and to be born again
