11. Poetry for Where We Find Ourselves
September 25 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm
“What a place we find ourselves in now. What a mad and dangerous universe of possibility.” (Matt Suddain, The Theatre of the Gods) Poets Gwen Benaway, Canisia Lubrin, and Sadiqa de Meijer open up the universe of possibility in their poetry. Gwen explores the everyday poetics of the trans feminine body, asking what it means to be a trans woman; Canisia interrogates selfhood against the contemporary backdrop of toxic nationalism and climate disaster; and Sadiqa writes about the “distraction, exhaustion, exhilaration, and fear of raising a child through illness and crisis.” Joining them as moderator is Kingston poet, Sarah Yi-Mei Tsiang.
