I wrote a Guest Blog on @TAYOLiteraryMag : “On Identity”

 

So, what can I say of the identity movement in poetics?

I can only say what I know the body knows: it is a constant push, a constant pull, a constant rebuilding, a constant rewriting, a constant becoming, a constant being, a constant solidifying, a constant renewing, a constant re-knowing. In my own elementary analysis, I know the movement wants to say that the self exists. That the body exists. Whether it is of togetherness in a community, whether it is of the plain man or woman, whether it is of the self within a sub-culture, sub-community, whether it is of the self existing within the self, within the fractures, it is the self existing.

Identity is the pressure to become.”
