In our human condition we face the disasters of the planet.
Our burning planet. Where do I start and you begin? When we talk, how is what I say mine, and what you say your’s? When can the I stop and the us begin. Is it any different when we write? How can we claim ownership? The body that I am collaborating with is an Afro-Caribbean American Woman. Some communities aren’t responsible of this crisis; traveling on the bus making space for tired feet and prams, capitalism is burning the knowledge of the communities that respect and take care of the planet. The I that believes driving is freedom. Keeping quiet those voices, burning the voice of the forest, the voice of the plants, the voice of the animals. Two thoughts, two ideals, two sets of behaviors, code switching, in one marginalized body. In our human condition we face the disasters of the planet. Our voice transcend and go beyond the human, to exchange blood, air, energy, circuits, molecules, with animals, flowers, critters, stones, water, lights and disappear or become a multiple being. How can we start to listen? How can we claim ownership over anything we didn’t invent ourselves? Language is inherited, borrowed, occupied, hacked. Just as is the land upon which we live. It is not ours. We only use it. And pass it on, like a virus. Pretend to mediate, to be a medium of these identities, living beings that are diminished. They walked to the market, to buy vegetables for her family to eat together. With thoughts of time–space compression she walks back again; trolley bumping the pavement by the passing cars.
