These are normal lives. Children swallow teeth. Husbands masturbate into toilets. A Black man does field training with a white militia in the Pine Barrens. People protest the carceral system and loathe their siblings all the while. Urinary tract infections go painfully awry. Teenagers sealcoat suburban driveways. Salt therapy sessions culminate in paranoid mental breakdowns. E-cigarettes explode in the pockets of deadbeat dads. Employees labor even in their dreams. This is normal. This is how we live.
