poet & educator

Alison, a mixed-race nonbinary femme, is in profile, looking to the right. Their dark hair is down, and they are wearing gold-post earrings that have a dangling, mottled-green stone-like snake. They are also wearing a black strappy jumpsuit (even though you can only see from the mid-chest, up), and they are smiling slightly. In the background is Meditation Mount, in California. There is a dirt path and some succulents in the background, as well as mountains, and a few clouds in the sky. It is dusk. The golden hour!
