“Even out of context, the two deleted epigraphs betray their weightlessness and make me feel a little sick. If you were here, I would make you some mint tea and turn out the sofa for a little bed. Here you are. There it is. Let’s talk about it tomorrow.
Are you alive?
One thing next to another doesn’t mean they touch.”
-Bhanu Kapil, Ban en Banlieue
