Chapbook – for^in (self-publication) by Kay Ulanday Barrett
kay ulanday barrett forges emotion from the bodies of dictionaries & tarot cards with this ferocious chapbook, for^in. poems include: even before george dubya, notes on dehydration, hayop ka! and many more. with subtly and ancestor speak, this first work offers adoration, resistance, and a radiant perspective from a queer brown midwest-grown poet who has survived. kay’s poems are not truths to be excused, folded, or placed on the coffeetable wayside. if you are thirsty, wanna claim some power and like the music of avenue psalms, the echo of letters, or the bravado of a protest chant, the irreverant honesty in these debut pages will be enough nourish to make high school textbooks simmer and blush for years to come.
includes over 20 poems!
