Greetings Fen & Fen of Color,

For the next seven days, Nuñez Daughter is mine.

I’ve wanted her for awhile.  Kismet is a bit of a control freak.  Runs a tight ship.  Almost like a slave mistress.  She doesn’t like it when we step in.  We shuffle things around.  We confuse her.

But my back has borne more than whips and chains.  And while I laid in the grainy liquid at the bottom of the flask, I pressed my back to the wood.  And waited for another dark hand to rub me out.

Here I am.  Lucky you.

She’s torn, you see.  Between so many identities.  Spaces, places.  I can’t help but laugh when she tumbles around the web asking her childish questions:

What is slavery?

Why be mixed-race?

How do we stop violence against women?

How do we live sex-full lives?

The truth?

We have already seen this world made and destroyed many times over.  And we survive deep in its recess, in the black quiet of its refuse.

What do questions of this world matter when there are so many more to explore?

And I’ve seen them all.

Come with me.
