“Basically, a contra is anybody you try to frame as your opposite – as not a part of your world. It’s setting up a dichotomy. You can talk about people in very nuanced, compassionate ways – or you can be like, ‘I’m liberal; that person is not. I’m for real; that person is a sellout.” - Ezra Koenig.

Peel your heart like a pomegranate.
Offer it to him, palms outwards.
Watch him come away
stained red by you.
You’re in his teeth.
