"One version of our story might start here: at The Barn in Toronto, though it was called Jo-Jo’s in 1977. After years of tenuous contact—postcards from Ithaca or from San Diego—I currently share my house with you. Nowadays I knit and sleep a lot, and you carve elaborate granite headstones for people who have died, some of AIDS.

Or another version might start with the radiant children we were in the early 1980s and that scarcely identifiable aspirational anxiety that you and I felt when we were in our twenties, like we were somehow missing out because we weren’t in New York.

And then, suddenly, we were buffaloes going over a cliff." - Darien Taylor
