Camera by Cordelia Mastoff.



I build my body contour drawing using foods from different periods in my life - boiled rice underwear, baked bean dress, apple sauce hair and pumpernickel boots. She is what I ate. I lower myself down on top of her and sink into her flesh. In a face-to-face embrace, I begin to eat my lover. The first bites make me gag. Her body squelches underneath me and I consume it until I am full. I dress and pack away the half-eaten corpse still lying on the floor. The affair ends and I leave disgusted and embarrassed by the act.
