The lists began to repeat themselves but change shape a little as they went. I liked to number everything. Things had to be correctlylisted first, that is, it could be 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, not 1-6, 1-7, 1-9, or 1-13. There were no other combinations allowed. I was not strict with myself during this time about anything else. In fact, I was quite indulgent, but the lists had to be correct.
They began

1. the woman who saw her own death
2. the woman who walked out of walls
3. the woman who told the stories

Then there was some breakdowns.

1. the woman who saw her own death hike
2. Adelmira//valentines day/sada black
3. The women who robbed the men
4. Elevator
5. The woman who told the stories
6. The woman who walked out of walls
7. The woman who saw her own death
8. Halloween 1
9. Halloween 2
10. Lilian
11. ?
12. i swear im telling the truth
13. unfolding, slightly unguided

 

And then just dozens of names. So many names listed and the phrase “breaking curses” and some I kept or traced in marker, wrote on my whiteboard, one in particular:

infuse.
infuse.
execute.

“datura moon” or “the act of naming things”
