Disability poetics

A collection of Crip poetics

Disability poetics
Maurice Moore. "Venus of Willendorf (Yeah, Baby, She's Got It) (feat. Sarah Baartman, Martha Wash, Izora Armstead)," Ink on Paper, 19in x 24in, 2021

A beautiful essay and collection of poetry that celebrates "crip poetics" and "crip aesthetics" and explores the legacy of past and present poets who explore what were historically taboo subjects like mental health, addiction, and disability but that today are recognized as integral to understanding what it means to be human.

Disability poetics speaks powerfully because it articulates the resistance of bodies and minds to the erasure, commodification, convenience, and disposability articulated all around us and that we struggle against.
