Straddling the wreckage of late capitalist America, the poems in Kenneth Reveiz's MOPES arc urgently toward utopia--or at least they do their best.
The intimate eros of liberated queerness is interrupted, undermined by a flood of dystopian American violence. The choice to fight for love and justice roars from each page with a poet's heart and an activist's ferocity.
Breaking new ground in queer and Latinx writing, MOPES is a provocative, political, and paradigm-shifting coming-of-age story about revolutionary disappointment.
Winner of the Fence Modern Poets Series Prize.
