Body Art by Gesine Marwedel, Germain artist.

do you ever wonder how the internet will react to your death?
in your heart of hearts is there space for me?
do you ever wonder how people are sleeping?
have you ever been addicted to the clawing of ancient memories?
do you ever stop falling in lust?
are you always only in it for the glory?
do you feel undressed by the mere sense of another in the room?
if you are always conscious of authenticity, are you truly living authentically?

i felt seven nestled into my mother as she stroked my hair,
i felt eleven biking down the roads of my childhood,
i felt nine when my father came home and i was waiting at the door,
i felt eight as i waded in the shallow end of the pool,
i felt fifteen when i lied about where i’d been,
i felt fourteen smoking a joint behind the tree,
i felt sixteen riding with the windows rolled down in your car,
i felt twelve crying over the pains of mother nature’s monthly gift,
i felt ten catching the piercing glares of judgemental girls,
i felt thirteen slamming my bedroom door in a fit of rage,
i felt seventeen endlessly locking lips,
i felt eighteen packing boxes.
