What kind of words do we have to describe our relationships? and what do those words do for us?

I've been thinking about how naming is used to build identity. That language becomes something that can buttress who you are, that makes it clear, or legible. And then thinking how could we use language, by way of practices of description, to rather try dis-identification. To think about how it can undo and thus destabilize a certain reading of bodies, their gestures, and relations. In order to experiment with what this or that relationship might mean, and thus could be. Starting from geometries of relation, literally the shapes we take, in love, care, touch, and dependency, and open the erotics through language.
