The word land — I need it in English. In other languages, land and Earth are the same vocable — imagine saying “Planet Land”. In other languages, I avoid it. I say land, anyway. Land is something closer and tactual, tangible. Dirtying hands. Smelling. Something trivial, also: it can be sold, bought. It’s personal, or it’s abandoned. You can dig holes in it. It’s where you run, where you fall hurting your knees.
