I like when something is placed in space so sassy and flashy, being almost like mincemeat floating and flying in the air changing colors. Like directed and ordered from down by some butcher. Loosing shapes and hiding behind itself.
“Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick has defined the term queer as a practice that develops for queer children as the ability to attach intently to a few cultural objects, objects of high or popular culture or both, objects whose meaning seemed mysterious, excessive or oblique in relation to the codes most readily available to us, [which] became a prime resource of survival. We needed for there to be sites where meaning didn’t line up tidily with each other, and we learn to invest these sites with fascination and love. Thus, to perform queerness is to constantly disindentify, to constantly find oneself thriving on sites where meaning does not properly “line up”.”
