A memoir-in-verse about the links between movement and how it influences gender identity, perception, and performance, utilizing the bus terminal as a throughway to discuss transition. The book discusses issues that deal with safety, passing, rural and city queerness, police and prison abolition, and autonomy. GREYHOUND is one poem, routed in the authors life, that is the journey and the destination and how those two places are linked through the movement between each other. It is a book for outcasts, true-freaks, weird-o's, and forever and always anyone trans.

They are the 2019 Noemi Press poetry prize winner for their collection Greyhound, and have work published or forthcoming with Nightboat Books, Baltimore Beat, and beestung.
