Poonam Srivastava writes from the queer crossroads of identity, freedom, sex, and politics to offer poems and prose that shine a light on our common journey from birth to death.

Tsaurah Litzky writes about loneliness and love nests, embryos and fossils, the ocean and the waves. Tsaurah Litzky writes about the only true church – the temple of the body, the passage of time, the fens of despair, my family, my friends, the need for riddles and rhymes, the fear of death and how poetry can make the future seem possible.

Tues 2-22 Amy King & Poonam Srivastava at Bluestockings

Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike

 Tuesday February 22nd 7PM – 9PM

 Feature Writers: Amy King & Poonam Srivastava 

King’s poems end up having to do with everything: the culture wars, Brooklyn, our sham economy, ecology, our actual wars, fashion, sex, patriarchy, food, God, loving a woman as a woman in the middle of this whacked milieu, none of them simply about any one thing, all of them managing, like a kaleidescope, to make a pattern of some fragmented vision glancing through a mixture of themes.

 

Poonam Srivastava writes poetry and prose to contemplate the notions of personal freedom and responsibility in the pursuit of happiness from a queer, disabled, non-conformist perspective.
