2 secret eggs

July 9, 2011, Montréal workshop with Eric Létourneau

oppressor: you move through my throat and a dead hand comes in my left hand with images on its ring. a beach, a wall and a hole to see water. there is German language. this is about the land of my ancestors. oppressor: you come out again, more, and at night my dad has tender green/blue eyes and he says that he can get me a coat if i am cold.
