Kara Walker, Danse de la Nubienne Nouveau (1998)
May 5, 2003:
My cancer is like a friend who screens me from those parts of the world from which I choose to disengage.
My cancer is like a business suit investing me with formal propriety.
My cancer is like an old pet, whose every inarticulate grunt and sigh I understand perfectly.
My cancer is like a cloak of invisibility which hides me from those I choose to avoid.
