…Beyond that debate, we remain, in all our queerness, anomalies writing aloud the unimagined territories that language spearheads and explores. They may fear adventure in my world, but I inhabit theirs in multiple ways—and am them.
…Queer poets especially locate practical alternative means for production and distribution of our work. These methods typically supersede the accolade-driven capitalist mainstream venues for poetry.
…A queer poetry is one of the very few realms of human conception not beholden to reifying the ideal “what is” or obeying the stultifying rules of specific schools of thought; in that knowledge and with such a history of subversive freedom, we are able to emerge and push past the naming of repressions and injustices; we are able to pursue the what else.
