A Readiness

A Readiness

A Readiness 

In trainers and in anticipation, two women arrive at a place to engage in a game of nerve. The relationship between them is uncertain, because the game too is uncertain; they seem to enter and exit it as they please. These women stomach the nervous energy that swells in the gut and tingles on the skin. Every new beginning is a starting line and every fraction of a second matters… until it doesn’t.
