SPIT or SWALLOW is a proposition for the audience to consider how they personally relate to language.
Does one swallow the tainted formed letters, submitting to societies use of language? Or does one leave it sitting, loosening within the salvia of the mouth, rejecting its intentions to hinder the thoughts of the individual? We must take into consideration how we digest our surrounding language, thoughts, ideals and stimulation. Language can be a manipulator. However, we have the capacity to prevent its continuation towards the root of our being. There is no perfect answer, just a contemplation of how one can relate to language in the future.
