A live performance
They say she holds the key to sovereignty in her person. I have marked mine on my body.
136-564*, all marked, somehow on their bodies too. Rituals to end cycles, markings to etch truths. Watching the raising of the bread I become a pilgrim, an unlikely pilgrim. Burst into tears, for that loss held in my body. The traumas too, the one, the two. She felt it all in her body before she knew. I walked across a county to learn how to be here, carried the weight of it, until I could let it go. Let it all go. This is my body. I see mySelf. Here & Now. J’essaie. I’ve been trying.
