Overview

This collection of 38 poems envisions a world turned on its head by the incoming reign of a queer God - a reign so close we inhale it with every breath, yet so distant it might well take a billion years more to fully immerse us.
These poems wrestle with God, humanity, and the Bible from a queer and trans perspective, drawing from the author's Catholic and Presbyterian backgrounds to do so. Scripture and science, nature and personal experience mingle together in the text as bitterness melts into expectant joy and wounds yield unimaginable blessings.
