I’m over the moon about The Deaf Poets Society’s newest issue, called “Crips In Space,” which includes eight of my poems. The journal, its editors, and these writers/artists are bringing disability and the disabled into the final frontier.
Make sure to read the editor’s note to see how the idea for a #CripsInSpace issue formed. The guest editors for this issue were Alice Wong, a disability rights activist, and Sam de Leve, a writer and wheelchair athlete. They brought important perspectives and ideas to the special issue.
My poems included in “Crips In Space” are:
- On that one-way trip to Mars
- Application to NASA
- Moon, or no moon
- The martian comes to me
- A speck of pain
- I give a cosmic middle finger
- Aging with the solar system
- You magnify the universe
