A statement from Socks:
"Given a prompt by a creative writing teacher to make art around "a conversation you need to have, but haven't had," I wrote and recorded this piece in late April 2020. I'm sharing now because I struggled to find positivity in these trying times, until I remembered my recent reflections on happier ones. Thanks to Gabrielle Civil for challenging me to write it, and to my sister for inspiring it."
