The Baggage

Giulia Bencivenga


What is all this commotion for?


don’t need to monopolize
pain or candle sticks
in order to conceive of truth.

Gnosticism would have us believe

Matter matters to matter...

But I don’t find myself

in my tits, I feel
very much... chair.


Life can’t help

but flourish despite Form...

Desire’s ruinous

Spirit everywhere.
