Excerpt from "I.S.A.A.C. 2", 2021
A long, long, time ago, Grandma danced out from the sea. Given that it was a cosmic dance with no conception of borders, she knew little of the trials and tribulations that her descendants would face 400 million years later.
How could she have predicted the invention of borders? Between countries? Between races? Between genders?
How could she have predicted the dissection of her descendants across so many borders that they struggle to know themselves?
How could she have predicted the systematic breaking of hearts?
My body is cut up. My skin is drying out and flaking off. I shed my arms and legs yesterday. And, just this morning, I sprouted fins.
Grandma's cosmic dance, one that transcends borders, inherited from generation to generation, fills me. I look like her, I move like her, I'm cosmically dancing back into the sea.
