Prompt: To be mixed. To be female, except… To be a POC except... To be from here but not really, to be a dancer and also other, to be in agreement except not, to be in the light except private, to perform these selves, to make a ritual, to undo the rituals, to use what is passed down and also create something new, as a collective and separate.
