A Life In A Liminal Space

Susana Vargas Cervantes/S.A.

I long to be contained
So, I poured myself on you
But through your wholes I disappeared
And I don’t know where I went

Ambitions gone beyond
Challenged gestures and affects
Upside down representation

Accused of plagiarism to a plumber
Plagiarism to a spectacular Elsa
I don’t know
But yet you defined me and us

Ambitions gone beyond
Challenged gestures and affects
Machine aesthetics

As I parted
Divided
I came together again
Your wholes were well thought
I just didn’t know

Intentions gone beyond
Challenged gestures and affects
Upside down interpretations

You made it or not
There is a new thought
You knew it or not
I was contained

Forever changed
I live in a liminal space
Lost between the ordinary
Or elevated to the form

Intentions gone beyond
Challenged gestures and affects
Upside down interpretations

I turned yellow
