I will perform Verse Cabaret - my combination of poetry and popular songs - in "Instrumental" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, 4 Dec 6:30-7pm & 7:30-8pm FREE with a donation to the museum, in the instruments gallery! Co-presented with Poets House.

My new performance ON PAPER (shown to the left) premiered as a work-in-progress at Dixon Place in NYC to a sold-out crowd! On Paper is funded in part by a Franklin Furnace Fund grant to "create a major new work of performance art in New York City."

My scholarly book Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination WON THE 2015 LEWIS AWARD FOR BEST CARIBBEAN STUDIES BOOK FROM THE CARIBBEAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION!

New poems are at Transition (responding to the prompt "I can't breathe"), The Cortland Review," and the new journal The Wide Shore. And a new essay about my performance art is in the beautiful e-misférica journal.
