    I thoroughly enjoyed the intelligence, variety and sophistication of this collection. It is in the tradition of Understanding The New Black Poetry, In The American Tree, The New Fuck You, and the New Narrative Anthology- the necessary creation/recognition of a context while not demanding conformity. There were so many old friends and major poets in this collection, I hesitate to name the stand-outs. Great job by co-editors Kay Gabriel and Andrea Abi-Karam - I love the nods to ancestors - and ver I thoroughly enjoyed the intelligence, variety and sophistication of this collection.

Great job by co-editors Kay Gabriel and Andrea Abi-Karam - I love the nods to ancestors - and very much appreciate the conscious political claims, and inclusive community creation. Also beautifully made by Nightboat. Congratulations to all.

    Some of the poems didn't do it for me but I think that's to be expected from an anthology of poetry. This is perhaps a silly thing to single out but I think the editing of this anthology was brilliant- particularly having the authors' names bold, large, and taking up an entire page. The power behind that, when we are so often forced to relegate our true names to parentheses or hide them behind shameful modifiers like "preferred", really exemplifies the theme of the anthology.

    a sweet warm light in a dark + isolating time. don't worry, you don't have to "get" all the poems to enjoy the book and get something good and useful out of it. sometimes it's just nice to be there, surrounded by yr contemporaries and trans siblings! * i think this book is "radical" in that it talks about abolition, state violence, copless futures, transformative trans autonomy. i never expect poetry to do work that only people, bodies, organizing and community care can do; but, this book made m a sweet warm light in a dark + isolating time. don't worry, you don't have to "get" all the poems to enjoy the book and get something good and useful out of it. sometimes it's just nice to be there, surrounded by yr contemporaries and trans siblings! * i think this book is "radical" in that it talks about abolition, state violence, copless futures, transformative trans autonomy. i never expect poetry to do work that only people, bodies, organizing and community care can do; but, this book made me feel kind, loved & not alone. it's not radical like it'll bring abolition and a utopian ideal to your doorstep in a cardboard mailer but it was nourishing for my heart; do recommend.
