Reduction

Added on by Sarah Moore.

I can feel when someone has creased me between my edges, ready for a fold. Sometimes I see myself sliding into an envelope someone else’s tongue will seal. I fear the imminent loss of space and limitation of movement. I fear being plotted on a map or simplified past recognition, stripped of complexity. Just and only are two of the most threatening words in the English language because dimensional conversion is so violent. Dimensional reduction is the psychic division necessary for violence.
