Mimi Tempestt’s book of art and poetry is a meditation on death, and on how Black girls, women, trans women, and femmes become displaced and experience violence and subjugation as a result of patriarchal systems in America. Mimi has graciously shared a poem from the book below, and a video of them reading it.
