Enthusiasm cored, unborn, glassy, turgid: that moment between the noise you do not want to recognize and the opening door.

Once taken aback, you cannot take it back. The door swings away from you, pieces of stomach scuttle like marbles down a ramp.

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
