lyrics

text by gabrielle jensen:

p small, i love you
p small, you are loved


hello p smalls
meet P Small
(pretty small)

As used in a sentence, "That ice cream cone is p small, I want another one."

It must first be said that p small is not a person but is a theory of the codes used
to mark our bones and flesh and vocal cords

P small is about how we are made
How we are made to feel so, so small
Through our bodies
Towards our bodies

P Small is a hero-theory
P small is a resistance to the systems and the language
that mark our bodies violable

P small is about how we are made

How we are made in codes
that we hate, know, and oftentimes reproduce


P small is about how we are made



P small is about smallness
Psychic unto the physical
Physical unto the psychic

Taking it and taking away
the pleasure of our bodies
the being of one's own body
the swelling joy that that can be

P small is about how we are made


P small hijacks this sense of small:
the systems, and the language,
that mark a body violable
the language that I hear in my own words

P small is an invisible target
P small is not a place
P small used to hurt me

P small used to haunt me:
coded in disgust
in the frailty in being
in being, watched

But what you must know
is that P small is yours alone
P small is a refuge
P small is a quiet place for you to speak
with yourself

P small is a practice
Again, P small is a resistance


P small is about how we are made

What we ask for from our bodies
What others hope to find there

P small is not allowed to speak
for their own body
but is endlessly demanded to


P small is not for sadism
unless you like your smallness that way

Don't we all like feeling held?
Don't we all like feeling precious?

P small is a hero theory
a theory of the codes
set upon bones and flesh and vocal codes

P small is a ~prayer~

The Spectacle wards off the body in excessively evoking it
The Spectacle wards off the body in excessively evoking it
The Spectacle wards off the body in excessively evoking it


P small says no
P small says no, no, no x 14

P small says NO
no to your violence
no to what you write my body as
and the other bodies
and all the bodies


P small fights the Spectacle that wards off the body in excessively evoking it
The Spectacle wards off the body's excess
The Spectacle wades out to sea
The Spectacle wards off the body,
the baby, the special baby



P small is about how we are made
P small is about how we are made
P small is about how make
How we make our bodies,the code
set upon bones and flesh and vocal cords


P small is of our body's poems
P small is towards pleasure
P small is a refuge
It is yours alone
