Yesterday, my poem “Beneath Collapse” appeared in online literary journal Soft Cartel. Subtitled “earthquake scenes 1999,” this ten-part piece came out of preparatory work for the Doom Pussy stories, where earthquakes are used as a weapon. I was reading newspaper reports of earthquakes and began cutting and slicing them, drawing out the most vivid and intense images to highlight the violent destruction and human drama.
