'I propose the following definition of nationality: it is an imagined political community - and imagined as both inherently limited and sovereign.' (Benedict Anderson, Imagined Communities, 1983)

'The body in pain is a body on the edge of society.' (Amelia Jones, Survey: Body Splits, 2000) To which I reply: the body in parade is a body on the centre of spectacle.

In Queeniland,

Weed is the highest 

form of hope - I keep 

an internal memo of

the Weedists 

Quasi-immigrants are 

our daily routine

Sometimes I hear the 

greenhouse weeps

But in happy hours,
I dreamt of 
free riding
the Mobike to 
T.A.M.,
landing on the 
red moon
in my astronaut 
helmet.

Feel good flesh zero

Just some pillow talk

minor linguist Icsulcer at most

et ce te ra, et ce te ra . . .

 

Yours autonomously,

Queenie  (Prototype ______ )
