A love letter to Brown, Queer, and Trans futures, the collection of poetry, More Than Organs, questions “whatever wholeness means” for bodies always in transit, for the safeties and dangers they silo. These poems remix people of color as earthbenders, replay “the choreography of loss” after the 2015 Pulse shooting, and till joy from the cosmic sweetness of a family’s culinary history. Poet Kay Ulanday Barrett works “to build / a shelter // of / everyone / [they] meet,” from aunties to the legendary Princess Urduja to their favorite air sign. More Than Organs leaves the reader physically changed by the intensity of experience, longing, strength, desire, and the need, above all else, to survive.
