how to breathe in a world of smoke? how to sing away time when your face is in the clock’s reflection? how to call yourself something unnamed by violence? how to do the impossible. read about some of the best rappers currently creating in the spaces of contradiction, like Kodie Shane, Noni Blanco, Cam & China, and Bbymutha, and follow one Black queer poet’s trip through the past, present, and future.
our afflictions are chronically absurd; our poetics must be too.⠀
