FINALIST FOR THE 2019 HURSTON/WRIGHT AWARD

An urgent and vital debut collection of poems that mixes ekphrasis with reportage to draw a new narrative of our present-day migration crises

Crosslight for Youngbird explores the slipperiness of borders, as well as borders' tentacles: mother tongue, language and mastery, citizenship and nationality, migration and flight. These poems are concerned with the demands we make on our body, the limits of those demands, and ultimately, how everyone inhabits space.
