dormant curses

'no other desire but to fulfil itself'

The text is concerned with the familiar feeling of desire and un-fulfilment. An antithesis of a receipt: an embossing of an event. Imperfect and on repeat - the words never have a chance to sit comfortably within the width or length of its own body. A private object that grows over time, but also perishes over time, much like our own bodies that share the destiny of all forms - impermanence and decay.
