I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, or more specifically: a two story end row home, situated between trees called Maple and White Spruce, three blocks from the 695 beltway, in the Patapsco river watershed, rightful land of the Piscataway Nation, deforested home of the butterfly called Checkerspot, west side of a beautiful city continually rebuilt by the living and the ghosts.

Like Audre Lorde and many great other humans have said: the personal is political.
