There is Still Joy

Some awful things have happened. There is still joy.
I can choose to be Ophelia. I can choose to be Ripley.
I choose to be Ripley.

I will not go quietly. I will fight.
My great-grandmother’s call name was Condor.
A condor is a frightening and formidable bird.
I will be formidable.
