from Manhattan Is a Lenape Word
The siren song returns in me,
I sing it across her throat: Am I
what I love? Is this the glittering world
I've been begging for?
Natalie Diaz (2020)
To be linked to the chain of existence and events, yes, but bound by it? No. I forge my own links, I am building my own monstrous chain, and as time goes on, perhaps it will begin to resemble, rather, a web.
