Thrilled to have a new personal essay up at Catapult to celebrate their launch.

And yet too that iron string is the thing that haunts me. Removed from the city’s ticker tapes, I exist now in the country’s camouflaged ruminations. I have missed openings and readings and book parties. Though I mark “Going,” to all the social media invites I receive, as if to say, “I’m still there in spirit.” Because I am.”
