• M|ghthaunt • (Los Angeles)
Grieta is a state cracked in half by extractive terrestrial abuse. Hovering in the air is the Estates, and below it thuthaside. Only a gondola system bridges the smokey, unpassable fissure that separates the cities. cr|me, a dark nigga queer from thuthaside, misses the last gondola from the Estates one night and is pushed into the fissure by police forces. This is how m|ghthaunt is made: not a man but a wraith, come back to venerate a dark nigga queer turned too-soon ancestor. m|ghthaunt is manifested from cr|me’s only remnants, their internet avatar @boon.woods, by an organizing force called a potential church. This is the base of m|ghthaunt’s story.
• R. Flex • (Toronto)
