1: inabsence // Emilie Wright
I the writer/reader
You the reader/writer
We – a temporal encounter – We – together in the text
The plurality of I is emergent – forming in relation to You
Language is held by us - in between us – another body – We shape its form
Existence is always coexistence
Exchange of matter – and of energy
You enter – I dissolve
We – a constellation – an assemblage
We – in orbit
