m – there’s been a lot going on this week.
g: i’d probably agree. how about the power outage?
m – mini-baby don’t care. i still got mine. what about you? did you get all stinky and smelly like you were camping for a week with no power?
g: ha! no. i did okay.
m – did you hear what i can do now?
g: no. what?
m – walk.
g: what do you mean?
m – are you serious?
g: yes. what do you mean, walk?
m – well, it’s like this – we’re all trying to get places. get things done. you’re either surviving or moving forward.
g: how so?
m – under survival, i include things like puffs, milk, and bathing. under moving forward, i include things like all the efforts to humanize the “masculine” and “feminine” gender roles that are the beginning of a false human hierarchy and normalize, race, class and other systems of domination to come.
g: is there a connection to walking in there?
m – I. CAN. WALK.
g: (blink, blink). Oh. (blink, blink)
m – i just got tired of sitting around. there’s a lot of thought that goes into getting somewhere.
