She is working on a chapbook entitled [bitácora total bust] and an EP entitled [LA POESÍA DEL CANTE JONDO], which will be out sometime in future recent history, hopefully.  Authors, artists, and books mentioned in this episode: Aris's twitter account Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge Jamie Berrout's translation of Esdras Parra's Este suelo secreto/ To Be Human Once More Frederico Garcia Lorca's Poema del cante jondo Trans Women Writer's Collective website Kay Gabriel's "Untranslating Gender in Trish Salah's Lyric Sexology Vol. 1" The name of the woman whose name escaped Aris's mind was we were talking about Aris's recent publication was Ralayzia Taylor.
