Game Over Books, 2022


“A Dead Name That Learned How To Live is a testimony of life ripe with weaponry and dire witness. These formally diverse poems and beautiful photographs incant spit and blood into and beyond ceremony, where “home is north & south, southern & city/ skull, bone & breast milk from// the most marvelous magicians/ this world done’ever called mother.” This is a time capsule in honor of immortality if to be immortal is “How God might be/ another word for family in the south,” if forever is the nation of a self prevailing.”

– Phillip B. Williams, author of Thief in the Interior & Mutiny
