TC Tolbert’s i: not he : not i (2014)
tc tolbert’s i:not he:not i shows us what a singing, breathing body is–– offers a cyclical, careful examination of the tiny miracle-machines beneath the skin. liz kramer’s vibrant colored collages offer diagrams for the dreamed up bodies of tc’s immortal poetry and prose.
The importance of folding things nicely. Needle-nose pliers. The light left on above
the kitchen sink. It once was and then wasn’t and now is again. What god never
would have blamed me for hiding. A chronology of suitable offerings. What we spill
and then stare at, delightedly. The body as it is singing. Or not.”
tc tolbert is a queer, a poet, and a teacher. s/he’s the author of Gephyromania and chapbooks spirare and territories of folding. s/he co-edited Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics. s/he would like to thank his family (given and chosen) for showing up. and the editors of pitymilk press for offering this body a place to live.
i: not he: not i is dedicated to stewball and mt. for love and letting go.
