A heat wave came and went. Summer ended. How many times can you tell me where I live.
Táysha, Tejas, Texas. Native lands not in native control.
Men want men. Women want men so they can have children.
From her to fur. From tragedy to her majesty.
Post Penis is an installation consisting of video, light, and sound. Not community or country based. No condom contracts.
