Hey Great Deleter!

A question for you:

What remains when all the superfluous is taken away?

You cut you chop you xtract you reduce you compress you undercut you take away you diminish you remove you amputate you desymbolize you decline, you transform, you disfigure, you cut cut cut

So that of everything I do, there are always two versions: the real and the unreal, the long and the short, the true and the false, the original and the revised, the pure and the unpure, the primary and the secondary, the virginal and the deflowered, the fat one the skinny one

Here, let me give you an illustration so that you can compare the two versions

compare The Undecipherable Gesture with Another Place and tell me which is which.
