amorous rejection, via an inability to relate the self negated to any pronoun. It is part of the' languish' project, exploring stages language as trickster, traitor and seducer, that flamboyantly connects, wiring the circuitry of desire, just as it silences and slices. One moment, it stutters, teetering on the brink, and the next, transfigures loss in radiant dreamscapes, restoring ardour amongst the ruins of allegory.
