Tonight’s Performance: graffiti’d body

My body is a building and in these thirty-six years of living inside it, I have been tagged and broken into. I have had invited guests and uninvited guests. I have even tagged myself.

Bodies are like buildings because they have many stories.

Bodies are like buildings because they have visitors.

Bodies are like visitors because they are hard but also cracked in some parts. They have windows; they see things. They can crumble; they can be built back up.

Tonight, I offer up my body as a building to be tagged. To be written on. To be entered with text or paint or labels or just wandering eyes.
