Won’t tell you what it is
I’ll tell you how it feels
Won’t know how it came
There, to my body

Couldn’t tell

StillI’ll tell, tell, tell

Can’t think of if going
after it had come
I’ll tell you how it stays, here,
In my body

I won’t define
As long as I live
As long as it lives
For the being won’t stop living
Organic art doesn’t stop
Organic art
Not artificial
organic art in my organs
organic art through my veins,

You come out in so many ways

Expressions
No pressure

Impressions

No pressure

Come your way

Go their way

Peer pressure

In your way

Free
Yourself

Let out

Exhale

Articulate

Let in

Free

From pressure

And your body                      will follow 

Your body

                  will
F
  L
     O
W


I won’t define
As long as I live
As long as it lives

Oppressors will tell you how it is
They know, that’s what they say
They don’t say I
They dehumanize the human

An impersonal self looking on the self

Impersonal self looking on itself
Seeing itself
Not seeing
Oneself
Seeing nothing, not reaching to the touch of your body
To your membranes
Brains cutting the veins
Life of your body
Cutting is the complexed oppressor
Decomplexing flows of lives in you
Impersonal self looking on itself
Dismembering
Eclipsing
Not to listen better
Eclipsing
To control you

Eclipsing
To eclipse you
Dismembering
Remembrance
Dismembering bodies acting on your bodies

No Space to the oppressor

Member together, he will go
Member again
