I Took This Polaroid of an Angel Once

2 panel glass installation, slide projctor, photographs

In between
seeing the world with shocking clarity
and a desire to hide oneself from that reality

excess of
I never asked to get my period
or to have my body change

and how hard to be aware
this contemporariness
can only be typical of
