Title: Like being born as a thousand points of light, I want the best or nothing. I am like a physical boundary carved up for commerce. I am like a collective wish for freedom, then forgotten. I am like Michael Jackson in faux-military apparel silent next to Bush in the Rose Garden. I am like the gold coins as sequins on the clothes of Tutankhamun. I am like Hans Haacke's corporate takeover of an East German sniper tower, Benz emblem blazing.

Like a Mercedes Benz or the heart of a sniper, I am a corporate takeover of Hans Haacke. On the clothes of Tutankhamun, I am like gold coins, or a rose in the garden. In faux-military apparel silent next to Bush, I am like Michael Jackson wished for and then forgotten. I am like freedom carved up for commerce. I am like a physical boundary wanting nothing but the best, a thousand points of light being born., 2016
