“Now Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You" A Poetic Meditation on the (Im)Possibilities of Mad Trans Time

Main Article Content

Jersey Cosantino


This poetic meditation explores the (im)possibilities - including imaginaries and dreams, longings and desires, wonders and exhilarations, fissures and fractures, heartbreaks and heartaches - of Mad trans time via the conduit of Mad trans poesis. By placing the complexities of Mad trans subjectivities, meaning making, and knowledge production in relationship to the archive and its residual traces and hauntings, Mad trans time unfolds as a deeply embodied theorizing, challenging and actively disrupting normative temporalities, blurring the artificial boundaries between past, present, and future; knowing and (un)knowing; being and becoming.
