Exercise to Dehumanize the Body
by Andrea Garcia Vasquez

[READ OUTLOUD] 

I am a body. 

I have some body. 

I am some body. 

I am a body. 

I am the body that I have. 

[PAUSE] 

I have the body that I am. 

[PAUSE] 

I stand still with my body. 

I move with my body. 

I have 

palms 

which can sense 

the surface of my body 

and every other body. 

My body allows me to touch it. 

How I touch my body. 

[PAUSE] 

My body senses pain. 

My body senses the wind. 

My body runs from the rain. 

My body detects every body. 

My body is detached from every body. 

My body is the receptor for what it means to be alive. My body is all 

that I 

really have. 

[PAUSE] 

To hold some body. 

[PAUSE] 

I have some body. 

I am my body 

I am some body. 

I have some body. 

I am a body. 

I am some body. 

I have some body. 

I am some body. 

Some body. 

I am a body.
