“Reflect, reflect metal cast” We All, Us Three, Will Ride – Palace Music

I have existed within this latitude and longitude (37.8044° N, 122.2697° W) for almost a year now. It’s time to unpack and pull the threads of the past into our odyssey.

The gravity of this settlement persuades me to acknowledge tension. I surrender to subtlety.

In Keeping Things Whole by Mark Strand, he writes:

“We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.”

I answer obligatory questions and watch my referents evaporate into confusion. The whiplash from my assumptions generates a spark every time. Those moments are when I am reminded of my capacity to render myself authentically.

This era of blank wave feminism has produced a cacophony of ideologies. From lipstick to victim, we continue to separate ourselves inside self-identified categories. These categories codify and they assist in commodification. I think this evolution is natural – application of theory assumes reification.


Active desire: I’m going to have an Olympic summer.
