"FUNERAL SENTENCES FOR DAMAGED CELLS traces one journey of trauma as it travels through generations of my American family. As it mirrors the Anglican funeral sentences, it becomes an elegy for the dead. In the United States, a country besieged by inherited trauma, our family stories are so often relegated to the dark places in our hearts, where they root and damage; or perhaps they fall out of photo albums, leaflets of pain, impressions of grief. But the expression of these stories can liberate us from their dark forces, breaking the cycle. I thank my mother, my grandmother, and my grandfather for their words, their wisdom, and the inspiration gifted to me for this piece: may you hear this from the cosmos, journeying in power from the beyond." - Kaley Lane Eaton
