We Search For God On Mars
Bottlecap Press • December 2021
Astrobiology is the ongoing search for life, and the potential for future life, in our backyard the universe. We Search For God on Mars ritualizes this search in poems about the religion of belonging, in earthly geographies and bodily ones, in cosmic vistas and landscapes of love.
A migrant narrator explores the phenomenology of memory – prayer and queer love punctuate the poetry the same way salt water and rivers unite and break up its terrains. With poems after C Pam Zhang, King James I, Sara Ahmed, and Isabella Wang, the chapbook inserts itself into spatiotemporal dialogues surrounding queerness, migration, oppression, and the sacred.
