Poetry chapbook by Summer Jade Leavitt. These chapbooks are scented with perfume to give you both a sensory and cerebral experience.
Summer Jade Leavitt is an artist and writer thinking about queer futures, possible bodies. Through text, photo, artifact, and video, she approaches everyday life as a site of performance, documenting gestures large and small to archive and historicize them. Looking at pop culture, history, music videos, film, and theory, she aims to confuse lineages and authenticity. Her performative existence is a sci-fi documentary: all real, all fake. She is seeking to locate origins of trauma and excavate them from the body, creating space for all that has been lost, all that is yet to come. In May 2018, she received the Academy of American Poets Prize from Carnegie Mellon University. She was recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize and was chosen as a finalist by Ching-In Chen for the Charlotte Mew Prize by Headmistress Press. Mad Girl's Crush Tweet is her first chapbook.
