whatsherface #21: Michelle Lee Salnaitis - I'm Gonna Deal With You Someday

I hear my heartbeat 

In my ears.

Is - Was.

Is - Was.

Is - Was.

Complete in its incompleteness,

It's a Reconstruction Site.

A listening for answers

Within the empty spaces.

I'm a product of militarization.

Your body,

The site of contestation. 

How do I get to your center?

Unoccupied

And

Unguarded?

Michelle Lee Salnaitis is a student of language, more so a student of silences and that which words cannot reach. It is her desire and longing to find word or image to articulate the seemingly incommunicable tender blind spots of the human condition.
