"We sometimes can browse the world but sometimes we need detail. We need to know the ugly why and the beautiful why. The poetic Queer why is often neglected. I believe this anthology will go someway to uncover and decorate our eclectic and diverse wheres and whys. In these increasingly complex times we need to understand why more." -Gerry Potter "When we talk about literatu "We sometimes can browse the world but sometimes we need detail. We need to know the ugly why and the beautiful why. The poetic Queer why is often neglected. I believe this anthology will go someway to uncover and decorate our eclectic and diverse wheres and whys. In these increasingly complex times we need to understand why more." -Gerry Potter "When we talk about literature, there are tweets and there are three-volume novels. And, selected poems and collected poems and a poem. There are so many different packages for the same energy to travel through. I think post-identity is sort of a zen concept. You know like, "Wake up!" (Smacks hands with a sharp clap). What's the identity of that moment? What's the gender of that moment? There are spots where there is no identity whatsoever. But by the nature of who I am or who any of us are we will need to be in groups that resemble us. It's so crucial to have those identity groups where you gather and are reinforced by your conversations. And don't live there. Something I'm really interested in is how queer identity is like an immigrant group. We need to find each other at various points to say, "God-Iceland!" But we don't live in Iceland. I think "post" is a desire to have a little space, but I don't think it's a place where you get to stay." -Eileen Myles

    Fantastic anthology. Do not try to binge read this it. Each part of this book deserves your full attention so spread it over a few days.
