What is hybrid?

An encounter. An utterance.

Neither/nor: both.

A doubling. An envelope.

An other.

The foreclosure on purity.

A jagged history: estrangement.

A critique of exclusion.

A split text. Or the fissures in structure.

Is camouflaged. Ephemeral.

A counter narrative.

Is what’s underneath the mask.

To be hybrid is unsettling.

The process of mutation.

A trace. Slippage.

A verb: Ruptures. Subverts. Reverses.
