    The trans poets I know and read dont mess around. They’re not going to muddy their meaning with pedantic vernacular and outdated cultural references. Right to the point: house music and broken, brown bodies. These voices are essential, and the compilation does a great job of bringing QPOC voices to the front with no dilly dallying for white liberals. This is real shit, real stories and an beautifully brunt read.

    intersectional queer honest art. what more could you want? if existing every day is giving you battle scars, here's a gentle back rub. intersectional queer honest art. what more could you want? if existing every day is giving you battle scars, here's a gentle back rub.

    A wonderful selection of voices in a really cool format; hearing from the poets in both verse and conversation really gives a special insight into their processes. I'm excited to read more from all of them now!

    I finished reading this anthology earlier this afternoon, and am so grateful it exists in the world. There were so many perspectives in just a short 103 pages, so many intersections of identity, and while everyone's work was in conversation with each other, each writer clearly had their own, unique voice. I'm eager to go out and buy their individual collections now (particularly Beyza Ozer's, whose work really drove the knife through). Very grateful for this collection, and looking forward to re I finished reading this anthology earlier this afternoon, and am so grateful it exists in the world.

    Favorite poems from this collection: "Home [Chaos Theory] - Christopher Soto, who may be my new favorite poet. This gave me an emotional breakdown on the meaning of the word "home." "Essay on the Theory of Motion" - Cameron Awkward-Rich. I think I have a new understanding of the word "transition." "Homebois Don't Write Enough" and " YOU are SO Brave" - Kay Ulanday Barrett, the latter of which made me cry.

    A stunning collection of trans poetry and interviews edited by the fantastic H. Melt. Their choices in poets and conscious, revealing questions make this book invaluable. We need more trans voices speaking out, and I'm grateful for H. Melt's work to make this happen! A stunning collection of trans poetry and interviews edited by the fantastic H. Melt.

    Powerful collection of trans poetry and conversations with the poets. Special chance to become familiar with a poet's work and then learn about their creative process and mindset. No surprise that Sibling Rivalry Press put out this innovative and important collection. Powerful collection of trans poetry and conversations with the poets.

    Love the poetry (will be reading more from all authors), and the conversation, and all the Chicago connections.

    A quick and moving read. The poems and discussion could be very educational for cis, white, able-bodied people... a moment to sit still and listen.

    A really good anthology by a press that does superb anthologies. You get a good sample of each poets work, and the conversations are really enlightening. Although fair warning, you'll want to buy every poets books after you read (though you should want to, anyway) A really good anthology by a press that does superb anthologies.
