Description

AN INFECTED SUNSET is an ekphrastic long-form prose poem first conceived in August 2016 in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting, police killings of unarmed Black men, and in the midst of the Standing Rock #NODAPL Resistance. During the writing of the poem the settler colonial nation state elected the 45th president of this colonized country, which revealed a sudden revival of extreme white supremacist nationalism.
The production and writing of this book is 100% POC made from start to finish.🖤.

AN INFECTED SUNSET was printed by Pur Dubois Press and timme lu in the ancestral lands of the Multnomah/Chinook and was co-designed by John Akira Harrold.

AN INFECTED SUNSET is risograph printed in two colours (red + purple), 8.31 in x 5.5 in.
Perfect bound chapbook and unbound pages (Liberated Poem). First edition of 400.

As the social landscape evolved, the LIBERATED POEM (as seen in the last photo) emerged as an offering to Indigenous communities and landscapes that strive for a decolonial and sovereign future emancipated from white supremacist capitalist heteropatriarchal settler colonial trauma drama. This performance poem is a reflection on queer sex, survival and death politics, indigenous identity, settler and heteronormative romanticism, environmental injustice, and the importance of honoring community.
