Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. JUSTICE PIECE // TRANSMISSION is a perverse and anxious attack on the concept of justice, asking "If I am the symptom, what is the cause?" Ranging from The Rocky Horror Picture Show to feminist sci-fi, white supremacy to the Berkeley Parents Network, gendered violence to Led Zeppelin, disciplinary heterosexuality to hypochondria, these twin poems tackle questions of how personal history and pop culture both build us up and tear us to shreds. Levin's writing lives in a space of contradiction, a call to "Make everything ugly / No aesthetics left / no mysteries / only problems."
