The other day I was in my office with my Research Assistant, Sairimar, going through the first spaces I experienced moments of queerness as a kid.
"Déjame ver some common conventions found in site plans."
Sairimar pulled up a site plan she'd worked on for one of her classes, and I spotted an odd little graphic made up of an angled line, two curves extending from it and two circles connected to each one's tip.
–"Oh! That's so cute. I want to use that in my drawings."
I look to the computer screen—an aerial view of my elementary school, Carib Christian School. I look to my school's rough site drawing in front of me. Poste-less.
–"Is there any way we can identify where those light posts are from Google Earth? I don't wanna go back there."
Poste means ‘light post’.
