a place in her own direction

"Her secret - all in webs. She spins interminable, even at night and without unraveling. the dream woman perfectly absent from - from herself..."
the traditional narrative of family alcoholism requires a secrecy from family members; a denial of its existence for its brutal manifestations. And like in the homosexual closet a truth becomes distorted.
For a young South Asian lesbian the closet mirrors the secrecy and shame of family violence and alcoholism. the closet becomes a web becomes a mirror becomes a pane of shattered glass.
