One of the things that got me so excited about assembling this panel was the unique texture each poet brought to interrogating / examining the ”everyday.’
Judson Evans
01:02:56
fascinating exploration! Impressed with the way the poems open out hoarding into a broader critique of late capitalism in U.S…. These litanies of objects are fantastic! “Clump of My Little Ponies”…impressed by the empathy and clarity
Aricka Foreman (she/her)
01:03:05
There’s so much materiality in these poems, lush and stark and tender. Thank you Kate <3
Claire Harrison
01:03:23
Kate - each poem is many-storied in the way that you amplify the objects - almost giving the subject a deep subjectivity.
