We’ve learned to live behind the darkest blinds, in the temple of an expelled sexuality, thinking that we’re alone and not unique. They’ve hidden us from seeing and being seen, through a heteronormative light that commands what is true, yet not just a habit. We poured ourselves into the woods to smell each other’s unprecedented lustful eyes, being taught steps of a non-lived adolescence. Until we’re left alone again, now concealed from the life that waited for us, digging for change in our family business’s pocket to watch the shameless lives of others.
