Mask for Mask
A debut full-length poetry collection.
Publication Date: March 1, 2021.
Publisher: New Rivers Press (Minnesota State University Moorhead)
Mask for Mask channels something between Tiger Beat magazine, Polari, cryptophasia, hook-up app slang, a LiveJournal, Italo-disco, Bible stories, queer zines, a JRPG, a D&D campaign, and a grimoire. It is a language of queer trials & failures, of shibboleths, of survivorship—and desire—above all else. It the performance of the physical body & the fantasy that goes beyond the limits of embodiment.
Many of the poems from this collection appear in print and online magazines and are catalogued on the Poetry page.
