Multi-Verse Poetry Podcast

May 24, 2023

In Episode 8 of Multi-Verse, poet India Lena González reads and discusses her poem “ACT ! pose with fingers as though cigarette (puff puff).” In a conversation with host Evangeline Riddiford Graham, González explores writing as choreography, the politics of casting, and the exhilaration and exhaustion of performance.

“ACT ! pose with fingers as though cigarette (puff puff)” is part of India Lena González’s debut manuscript, fox woman get out!, which publishes in September 2023 with BOA Editions.

An early version of the poem can also be found in the Brooklyn Review:…a-lena-gonzalez/
