This one has a lot of words at the top: "You think that must be a rejection. Do you feel disappointment? Relief? / But the next morning, you find this on your doorstep. Is it a seed? An egg? A spore? There are no instructions, so you trust it doesn't need any. / You hold it and say to yourself, 'Welcome to the Uncanny Growth.'" The illustration is of a hand holding the aforementioned seed or egg or spore, which is larger than the palm of the hand and has an approximate teardrop shape with ridges, chambers, and a rough or perhaps even serrated texture. Its surface is black and purple.

I know it's too many words, but can we just take a moment to appreciate that this is the closest I have ever come to drawing a cromulent human hand?
