Muscle Memory (Paperback)
This title is NON-RETURNABLE.
Kyle Carrero Lopez's MUSCLE MEMORY covers money & work, Blackness & anti-blackness, the art world, queerness, & violence-governmental to interpersonal-as it swerves through its colorful landscape. Lopez interrogates the various complications of earthly living in a sharp, fresh voice, returning again & again to the musical core of his poetics. Afro-Cuban drumming & disco & Solange commune as these poems ping-pong between reverent softness and unsparing critique. Equal parts jovial and furious, this is a debut with teeth.
