"When I dream, my body is the site, not only of the dream, but also of the dreaming and of the dreamer. In other words, in this case or in this language, I cannot separate subject from object, much less from the acts of perception. I have become interested in languages which I cannot make up, which I cannot create or even create in: I have become interested in languages which I can only come upon, a pirate upon buried treasure.
The dreamer, the dreaming, the dream.
I call these languages, languages of the body. There are, I suspect, a plurality or more of such languages. One such is the language that move through me or in me or... for I cannot separate language body and identity..." Kathy Acker
