Set against the media environment that saturates even our most intimate spaces, Dispatch attends to, revises, and thinks adjacent to the
news of racial/gendered violence in the US, from the nineteenth century to the present day.
These poems ask: What kind of revisions will make this a world/a story that is concerned with my people’s flourishing? How ought I pay
attention, how to register perpetual bad news without letting it fatally intrude?
Cameron Awkward-Rich is among the most bracing voices to emerge in recent years, a dazzling exemplar of poetry’s (and humanity’s) possibilities.
