So pleased to have work in the new Talisman “Occupations” issue–a poem, “You were born,” written in homage to Juliana Spahr, Joshua Clover and Chris Nealon, and some prose from Plastic: an autobiography, on my unhealthy obsession with a plastic car part. Much gratitude to the editors, for the chance to be in such company.
First we had the plastisphere, a new ecosystem of tiny plastic particles in the ocean colonized by bacteria.
I love the poetic comment at the end of this piece that future beings might find etched impressions of water bottles in fossils. Welcome to the Anthropocene, life.
Thanks Susan Schultz for the tip.
