Tripwire 17

Three new poems of mine are included in issue 17 of Tripwire  (January 2021), a superb print journal of poetry and poetics publishing in Oakland, California. Tripwire  is devoted to a counter-institutional exploration of radical and experimental modes of contemporary poetics, art, and cultural politics. It was founded in 1998 by Yedda Morrison and current editor David Buuck . Six issues were published between 1998 and 2002, before rebooting in 2014. The journal presents critical and creative work within a loose rubric, carrying issue titles such as 'Cities', 'Work', 'Transnational/Translational', 'Pop', 'The Red Issue', 'Performance/Writing' etc, along the way incorporating mini-features on Renee Gladman, the poetry of the Greek crisis, and more. Special supplements, a pamphlet series, and a translation grant have also been launched.  This wide-ranging interview with David Buuck about  Tripwire and contemporary poetics & politics c
