Quotes

[edit]
  • “There are presumptions, in the world as it is now framed, of who the worthy victim is and who merits the power of full witness,”
  • We know, nyara, that to name the unnamable is a curse [...] Even if you plant another story into silence, see, the buried thing returns to ask for its blood from the living.
