Mile End Poets’ Festival
Nov. 22, 2018
Flamenco dancer Katherine McLeod choreographed and performed a dance to accompany my long poem “I looked for the exit, found a sleeve,” punctuating its soundscape with footwork and other effects. 

Published in my book Dream Rooms, “I looked for the exit” was originally written as an incantation/ritual/tantrum for coming into trans identity. In it, a clothes moth infestation provides an opening to think more expansively about gender, ecology, accountability, and the universe.

Katherine and I subsequently performed the piece at La Vitrola on March 17, 2019, at an event that also featured readings by Nadia Chaney and Marcela Huerta, among other performers.
