Zoe Leonard’s poem, artwork, manifesto, was first written in 1992, during the AIDS crisis and for the back cover of a magazine that folded before the text got printed. It then circulated among friends, was posted on Leonard’s refrigerator and was shown in an exhibition before being published as a postcard insert in a 2006 issue of LTTR – so we might find it in the PABD archive. Last November it was pasted billboard size on the Highline in New York. The book publishes transcripts of readings and performances that took place there, two days before the US election. The book is made to be widely disseminated. In the words of Sharon Hayes: ‘sharing, processing’ is a way to ‘respond, mourn, resist, strategize’.
