The generative impulse for this issue of DUSIE was in part informed by Timothy Morton’s Ecology Without Nature, his challenge to the notion of “nature” as it has historically been constituted, a notion fundamentally invested in isolating human from the so-called “natural” world, and that realm from the human one.”

– Marthe Reed, editor, DUSIE 17

So begins guest editor Marthe Reed’s thoughtful provocation, introducing DUSIE 17, an international online journal featuring emerging and established poets from around the world. This issue includes work from Camille Dungy, Bhanu Kapil, Megan Kaminski, Rachel Zolf as well as new work from volume two of thecanadaproject.

Written as if in communion with Marthe Reed’s exhortation for this issue,  my new poems explore this question, “How might witnessing in writing and art afford, indeed enact, an ecological poetics, a political/social/cultural, economic/aesthetic reconfiguration of “being-with” rather than being outside/separate?”
