what you can’t foresee can’t hurt you but for now poked in the eye / of the storm, we hover.
Mark McBeth lives, teaches, and makes things in New York City. He constantly wonders why--from so many facets of our lives-- contemporary language induces a deep sense of cringe-making edginess in us, how it makes us angst-written. He remains skeptically optimistic that word will change and make other things happen. He is an Associate Professor of composition/rhetoric and queer theory with archival tendencies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and The Graduate Center/CUNY.
