i is it.

today i read that a person’s life is a sacrifice and the first 24 years are the first libation of this sacrifice. i’ve been watching the first season of The Wire and last night i cried when kima got shot. i’ve been researching and writing non-fiction and fiction seems impossible to consider. i spoke with a development studies professor from Oxford on the phone and she spoke of the role of civil society. i have pockets of exhaustion.

now here’s the same paragraph where “I” is replaced with “it.”
