The Tail, as it Swings
“None of us is ever fully aware of the total effect of our sexuality at that age, but we have inklings, and those of us who are courageous enough, play with those inklings. The tail, as it swings, says 2 things: ‘Today I am an animal’ and ‘I have a reverse dick’.”

To Heartbreak Hotel
Where do we go when we write? What is that brainspace called? What are its parameters? How long can we stay there? Debbie calls the brainspace “The Heartbreak Hotel”. This piece is about illuminating the various rooms inside of us, what kinds of words might be in those rooms, who we might be inside of them : “As this body writes it will occasionally go into the other room to masturbate. To think about sexy or strange things. To feel intense, then dull.”

I Wave My Hands in Front of Me
Aldrin on David Wojnarowicz’ The Waterfront Journals and blessed estrangement from the individual body : “In ‘Diaries of a Wolf Boy,’ the speaker describes himself as a ‘wolf child,’ someone raised in the ‘remote jungles or forests’ and dragged into ‘his schizo-culture, snarling and spitting and walking around on curled knuckles'”.

Ella responds to a BOMB interview with Eileen Myles. In particular, the Roberto Rossellini quote “People today only know how to live in society, not in community. The soul of society is the law, the soul of community is love.”
