<p>Inspired by Rita Dove's groundbreaking <em>Thomas and Beulah</em>, <em>Connor &amp; Seal </em>is a masterful queering of poetic lineage. With oracular grace and whimsy, these poems innovate the public and private axes of gay love in a tumescent future. We meet Connor, a native Nebraskan and fledgling grant writer, and Seal, a financial analyst from Kingston, Jamaica, as they flummox the space between desire and demise, &quot;the sun again a big orange pill / stuck in the blue throat of the sky.&quot; <em>Connor &amp; Seal </em>serves as almanac to a time not far off, of techno-queer bots, state-sponsored violence, and individual resistance. With imaginative dexterity and stylistic flexibility, each poem in <em>Connor &amp; Seal </em>becomes a cipher of the labor of tomorrow's construction: &quot;a bench where two old faggots had to stop,&quot; an emblem of a future history, &quot;as quiet as the siren / is alarming.&quot; </p>
