Wet Wings

My inspiration for this piece was my top surgery in the spring, and how with it came the closest attachment i’ve ever felt to my body, even before the procedure was done. Instead of thinking of myself as a vague shape, i suddenly had to think about the nuts and bolts of my physiology. What’s […]
