Code Switch

by Harry Palacio

We use symbolz for our commonplace phenomena. Layers removed from what is found within arms-length. Awe-struck by how language is a code being broken between interminable people. A gathering in what seems like forests as well as androgynous co-living spaces where family and friends resurface to commemorate newly amended words in the Oxford- Dictionary: code-switching between identifying language and oral history that crashes on forgotten islandz.
