I took a post-election hiatus from social media.
I walked away from conversations about election results.
I cried a lot.
I put my hair in yarn twists, instead of shaving it all off.
Inhaled deep and long at the nape of my lover’s neck.
Shed a couple skins.
I accidentally broke my all-black streak a few days before break, because I really needed to do laundry but didn’t see the use of making a fuss about the ways I appeared to be resisting.
