Contract between Forward and Reply

Mia You

About This Poem


"This is a section from a text I wrote for The Multinational Book of Contracts, an anthology I'm coediting with the Dutch writer Maarten van der Graaff. My own interest in contracts arises from my recent readings in revolutionary feminist texts and wanting to interrogate how intimacy and desire are bureaucratized."
