Poetry: un [naming] / trans (After Golden) by angelic proof
The poem rebels against its own birth onto the confines of a page. Every line a whirlpool of self-reflective corrections and alterations—”un [naming] / trans” is a revolution against its own reading, your effort to build around it a box of understanding. Check out Golden’s aforementioned work that helped inspire the piece.
