    A healthy volcano is an exercise in the uses of pressure.
    ———
    Geryon sat on his bed in the hotel room pondering the cracks and fissures

    of his inner life. It may happen

    the the exit of the volcanic vent is blocked by a plug of rock, forcing

    molten matter sideways along

    lateral fissures called fire lips by volcanologists. Yet Geryon did not want

    to become one of those people

    who think nothing but their stores of pain. He bent over the book on his knees.

    Philosophic Problems.

    Anne Carson, Autobiography of Red

    Thinking about queer narratives that are neither proud nor sad: ones that are complicated and perhaps a little guilty. Ones that are embarrassed for their own hurt. Ones that develop in myth and fantasy or are retconned as such. Ones that are profoundly boring. Ones that lack such apparent narrative necessities as the closet or coming out. Ones we write.

    Holy shit this book. This book hurts. It’s so good. It’s introspective but also observant, the memories and the histories and the bodily sensations all coming together. Learning of this particular Korean experience, women of the past but approaching the present, leading to it. What happens before structures today and tomorrow. Cruelties of history, that history of civilizations which write history, the coldness by which suffering is placed.

    From the Petition from the Koreans of Hawaii to President Roosevelt (1905) sampled in Dictee pp 34-6:

    We know that the people of America love fair play and advocate justice towards all men.

    Taken directly from the historical document but placed within our contemporary knowledge, does that statement not burn?

    (sorry, the picture is kind of terrible quality. i tried to touch it up for legibility)
