Self Hate

Self-hate, self-sabotage, Brexit.
Choosing to leave out of spite. Spit at the sky. See it come back at you.

Self Love

On seeing my comic Self-Hate, this friend just quipped, “now you’ll have to do Self-Love.” Dismantle the word love as though it were a ticking bomb. A dubious, corny bomb. An explosive mixture of true emotion and pop culture.
Represent self-love as the dangerous thing it can be.
