“So here you are. Your clothes are polyester, and most of your teeth are removable. You think you’re going to lose the accent you speak English with, but you won’t. You don’t know yet that you’ll never see a ghost again, even though when you were younger you saw them all the time. Something about this new country interferes with your ability to sense them; idly you think maybe this is part of the transition of becoming that thing you’re trying to become. An American.”
— Elaine Castillo, PROOIMION, OR AITIA
