Poetry. What is the trust between hands? Where is the tenderness of sweat? In their full-length debut, Jamondria Harris moves to seek, to ask, to desire. "kill your teachers, name your lovers," says QUAERERE. In poems and pictures that meditate through black queer afro-diaspora, QUAERERE searches for the outside of the ice in its mouth. These poems know that no one fits or stays, but they still want to know whose body they're carrying.
