BANKS | To Harrison: On the Folly of Time
Little brother: I have a condition called Lymphedema, which causes my right leg to swell and forces me to wear a compression sock at all times. I’m constantly getting inquisitive looks. This would be enough uniqueness, but then I also take the stickers off of fruit and place them on my hand. Did you know that? I like to wear earmuffs on a hot summer day, looking like an idiot because people don’t know that they’re also bluetooth headphones. And when Ithaca inevitably shifts to rain and cool, you’ll find me under a bright pink umbrella.
