A tritina inspired by Ursula le guin’s 1983 ‘a left-handed commencement address’
To wander alone, late at night, in the dark
is foolish. Who knows what might happen to women
out there? Best stay safe indoors.
House. Home. Hearth = Indoors.
These are spaces built to exclude the dark
and protect a family. In particular women.
It has been the (his)story of women
to live constrained domestic lives indoors.
Watchful and wary of the dark.
Yet, even indoors, women know – the dark is everywhere.
