"Major Diamonds Nights & Knives" is an interactive poetry project modeled after a deck of cards. Readers are invited to read the poem, but the deck decides the order. While writing this poem I felt possessed by a spirit who died in childbirth. I tried to tell her story as best I could.
To read the deck, tap cards and they will turn over. When the deck is exhausted, refresh the browser to start again.
Thanks to Krishan Mistry for the coding and Gabriel Cohen for the card-back design. Thank you to Julia Sub, who invited me to show the piece at her popup show Text vs Image in New York City in October 2017.
Major Diamonds Nights & Knives was published in book form by Trident Press in 2018.
