Let Us Descend
Let Us Descend by Jesmyn Ward
'Sit with me.
Let me tell you a story...
It feels as if I have been in the dark,
journeying with this character,
for a long time.
It is difficult to walk south with Annis.
Her narrative Descends from one hellscape to another.
but I promise that if you come
with me, you will rise.
It will be worth the walking.
