Rural isn’t a monoculture
It’s a multi-layered culture of stolen, then redistributed, land
Owned then sold.
Men worked to show their worth
Women denied as a critical component of the earth
Earth has been for sale
Valued for its meat, fertility, and provisions
Broken into pieces like a shattered vessel no longer able to hold a bouquet of roses
Much less sustainable for the people, animals and other vegetation.
