Emergency Healing

I have a friend who is a poet.  His name is Harley Arthel.  He is also trans. He is also an activist. He is in many ways who I’d like to be when I grow up.

 

This is his book.  It’s a series of ghazals, which are an Arabic form of poetry, that he wrote after studying with my academic advisor and mentor, the poet Suzanne Gardinier.  (Suzanne works a lot with ghazals.  One time, she wrote a book of 101 of them.)

 

I am a very lucky person who has amazing queer poets in his life.  Consider this an offer to share some of them with you.
