Through conjuring sea monsters and holding somatic rituals, MONSTROUS CARTOGRAPHY charts and recharts the distances between self, gender, and the words we use to make ourselves legible. These poems speak simultaneously through the bodies of creatures culled from 16th and 17th-century maps and moments of present queer life. Speakers ask, answer, and ask again, how and if we can map our queer complexities.
