Abstract

Brianna Noll Just like rhizomes are rhizomes, even if you call them creeping rootstalks. This is not semantics— it’s a question of being in the world. When we watch the snow fall, though it might signal winter, something bleak or tranquil, we do not forget gravity, or that water freezes at 32 degrees. Don’t think us unimaginative: knowledge is inlaid with metaphor, and we invent narratives for what sleeps beneath the ice-iron earth. Still, we know that science can make a lamb glow green, so we are not tricked by spectacle. You can process through town with banners emblazoned with deer crossing silver shields, but your bloodied boots will always betray you.
