Additional information


eBook, Paperback

MissSettl is a funny, joyful, and spiteful collection of seriously playful poems; they carry on with provocation, engagement, and mourning for what has been done to our living practices. These poems lampoon rigged games of common sense, syntax, and citizenship to expose the mechanics of what Americans have become and what they might be freed into after the end of capitalism, and gender, and race, and money, and property. MissSettl confronts what’s in the way of love; it disrupts what limits our potential.


“Kamden Hilliard is one of the most unique poets. Whether writing about blackness, settler colonialism, or racial capitalism, they ‘tricc’ syntax and form into something both ‘skinthicc’ and ‘metaphysiqule.’ MissSettl invites us to party inside the ‘weerd’ language of multiple selves dancing and transforming ‘queerdum.’”
