Poetry. LGBT Studies. In GEPHYROMANIA (literally, an addiction to or an obsession with bridges), Tolbert's choice isn't between female and male, lover and self, or loss and relief, but rather to live (willingly, intentionally) in the places where those binaries meet. Questions arise: Is a bridge simply an attempt to connect one (seemingly) stable body back to itself? Whose body—which embodiment—is absent when we say "I miss you"? And who is adored when we say "I love"? Sensing the parallels between a lover who leaves and his own female body as it chooses (as he chooses for it) to recede, the poems in GEPHYROMANIA explore the spaces between, among, across, and even within bodies.

Constellarium chronicles the author's gender transition from biological male to female, and engages the ontological quandaries that arise from this experience. Family history and religious heritage must be reckoned with along the way. In Rice's poems, the evolving nature of the self, the fluidity of identity, and the lasting influence of the past are all held up to the soul's penetrating gaze.

Wanting in Arabic is a refusal of convenient silences, convenient stories. Concerned with not covering the tracks of her own metamorphosis, the author dwells in the contradictions of a transsexual poetics, in this attendand disfigurations of lyric, ghazal, l'ecriture feininine, and, in particular, her own sexed voice. Without a memory of her father's language, the questions her poems ask are those for a home known through photographs, for a language lost with childhood. Braiding theoretical concerns with the ambivalences of sexed and raced identity, with profound romanticism, Wanting in Arabic attempts to travers the fantasies of foundational loss and aggressive nostalgia in order to further a poetics of a consious partiality of being, of generous struggle and comic rather than tragic misrecongition.

Poetry. Women's Studies. LGBT Studies. Hybrid Genre. Transgender Studies. Winner of the 2016 Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Poetry. Part prose poem, part disruptive narrative, succubus in my pocket is a posthumous masterpiece of textual flux and cultural critique from pathbreaking trans woman poet kari edwards. The author described it as a "troubling of the habitual life story at the edge of the recognizable." "kari edwards's SUCCUBUS IN MY POCKET is a masterwork against mastering, a tarrying recursive, fretting over how to write from life when life is so relentlessly displaced by its commodity form, a palinode to identity from its extimite extrusions, sloughing on and off simulacra, flaying the skim off 'events,' relooping seriality and tracing narrative's affective ruses and too predictable disappointments. Talking to the taxman and the war machine and sex gender and the symbolic about poetry while turning a trick or laying down to hallucinate a line of flight rather than consolidate a happy story we might now call homonormativity or neoliberalism or white supremacy, SUCCUBUS is a most delicate and pissed and sad inhabitation of the available options and of their exorbitantly vital refusal."—Trish Salah

"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
