In “Slave Play”, the ancient South lives on the McGregor plantation-in the breeze, in the cotton fields… In the cracks of the whip. This is a fanatical dream before the war. Jim was shaking while Kaneisha was handling the watermelon in the cabin. Alana was sweating while Phillip played the violin in the boudoir, and Dustin curled up on the heels of Gary’s big black boots in the barn. Nothing is as it seems, but everything is as it seems.
