What are relationships?
Meetings, gatherings, protests, secret cell, reading group
Changed by conditions, physical touch
Uprisings organized, announced by a psychic at the bottom of a ship
then and then and now
Arrests, improvised communities, shots fired
Lack of clarity
word over word
wound over wound
talking over one another

Famous faces or faces that need protection get blurred, gestures remain. There is no great man, there is no leader. There are meetings, long and sometimes boring and important. Sometimes it is quick.
Huey P Newton shows us his copy of Venceremos!
Choreography becomes clunky as we move around our individual importance towards one anothers'. We are working out how to do and feel it in our heavily burdened bodies. Distinct positions, reality TV, Rich and Fanon and dudes on YouTube.
It might be obtuse but I hope we meet.
