“You said that in the beginning, there was a goddess and that goddess was me. I came free of the alligators, then they came free of me. This birth occurred endlessly. It was painful and bloody. The red poured from my mouth and my ears. The alligators bled as well. The blood came from their tails. There was no stopping the birthing, no way of interrupting the process. Alligator, then me, then alligator again. When I birthed the alligators, I laughed until I choked. When the alligators birthed me, they sobbed until they vomited. I collected their vomit in my mouth until the hole was a bottomless puddle of black water. I liked this blackness. I worked it around my mouth. I swallowed it, then spat it back up.”
