I never had much of a sense of direction, but in the Slough I have learned to navigate around suicide, substance abuse, self harm and eating disorders. All are easy to fall into, especially in the dark. And each has its own gravitational pull. The closer you get, the harder it is to draw back, but still to everyone else it’s not clear whether you have passed over the eventhorizon or not.

Redshifted, but not yet fallen.
