This from Brenda Iijima's "Metamorphic Morphology (with gushing igneous interlude) / Meeting in Language: P as in Poetry, / Poetry Rhetotical in Terms of Eco"...

"When I acknowledge that my body is intimately connected to your body (we affect each other), we can no longer categorize individual disabilities. Bodies are about and between bodies—that is to say, bodies extend beyond physical selves."

And this...

"I'd like to propose the term re-enable-ment to join what Donovan, Kocik and others have initiated. Instead of thinking in potentially polarizing terms, I'd suggest that function and dysfunction are impossible to pin down—there is a wavering among these terms...Dysfunction can bring about different sorts of functionality that rebel against categorization"
