Thanks to @amoshmarie at @PoetryFound for welcoming this rumination on Deaf poetics. If you are also thinking about how names & pronouns & identities are metaphors--a kind of lie, a kind of truth--I hope you'll be in touch. https://t.co/qtPWZRMRne

📚 Gumbo Ya Ya, Out NOW!! 📚
Hi, today is Gumbo Ya Ya’s birthday. I’m so excited for this book to be in your hands. I hope you love it as much as I do. Gumbo Ya Ya explores the stakes that Black intersectional femmes, face. It was a huge project. To share my own stakes, I’d like to tell you a story. (1/?)
