Boundaries between the land and us no longer exist. Anything for survival is ours, and survival at any cost ruins. We start to get confused, blow the tops off mountains in Appalachia and can’t tell if it’s rock or metacarpals broken in the slips. The air turns black; we can’t see but we keep moving to know the other might not yet be gone. We bury our faces in mosses. We beg to be orchids. LAND, a new chapbook from Dikembe Press, is the story of a “we” and their handling of topographies of the land and of each other to become, or unbecome, together.


Julie Kantor is a PhD student in American Studies at UT Austin where she works on the body, affect, cosmetic procedure, and reality television. Her poetry has been published in Boston Review, A Public Space, Maggy, and Foothill. Her work is being translated into Ukrainian for a new modern American poetry anthology, and she is a poetry reader and writes microreviews for Boston Review. LAND, published by Dikembe Press, is her first chapbook.
