KILLING GROUND

A place to be within—where we go to be other, to be against. Fraught moments, places of fear and striking out: territories, borders, streets, bodies. The barbed line we cross to do harm (or to seek compassion). What we call war, protection, or defense; what we call hatred or expediency. The place that we try to forget, to drown out. The place we struggle to remember, or for which we demand remembrance.
