Gertrude Press Comes Calling

“The “poetry reading” as a form has long felt tired to me. I want poems to live in 3D, as body, as hologram. I’m making poems right now whose prosody is haptic pulse. I’m trying to get the body to the poem, the poem to the body, as “nowly” as I imagine or experience it. I’m intrigued by where this allowance of the work to stretch and breathe and be itself might go.”

I want poems to live in 3D, as body, as hologram.

“At minimum, I’m just trying to survive. But also, at minimum, I don’t just want to survive all by myself. But also, I’m not all that interested in ‘at minimum.’ I’m trying to live my best, black-ass life. Whatever that is for you, I want for you too.”
