Active 5.75 x 8.49 x 0.38 in | 0.35 lb 120 pages McClelland & Stewart
An urgent, powerful examination of place and the ways in which all kinds of identities exist and collide.

The poems in sulphurtongue ask how to redefine desire and kinship across languages, and across polluted environments. An immigrant family scatters over a stolen continent. Oracles appear in public transit, and online. Bodies are transformed by nearby nickel mines. Doppelgangers, Catholic saints, and polyamorists alike pass on unusual inheritances. Deeply entangled in relations both emotional and ecological, this collection confronts the stories we tell about gender, queerness, race, religion, illness, and trauma, seeking new forms of care for a changing world.

Story Locale: Contemporary North America

Praise for sulphurtongue and Rebecca Salazar: 

“Rebecca Salazar’s poetry is a life-preserver in a sea of prejudice, pain, and confusion. Her words sing us back to what’s essential: truth, often cutting but always necessary, and beauty, found in the least likely of places.”—Alicia Elliott, author of A Mind Spread Out on the Ground

“The sprawling visionary heft of sulphurtongue recoils the diluted senses of earth and skin, sex and sulphur dioxide, queerness and religion, and more to reveal their deeper labyrinths of meaning. The singular power of this work rests not only in its wholly mature command of the craft, but in how Salazar’s sulphurtongue is a burning votive towards a world where the warped silos of history’s personal, ecologic, and collective toll gather toward a new imagining. A shimmering, head-long, heart-spin of a debut.”—Canisia Lubrin, author of The Dyzgraphxst
