"I REACH FOR CYREE JARELLE JOHNSON'S WRITING OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THEIR BLACK DISABLED FEMME GENDERQUEER BRILLIANT INSIGHTS AND POETICS ARE CRUCIALLY IMPORTANT TO OUR COLLECTIVE SURVIVAL. UNFLINCHINGLY COMMITTED TO TELLING TRUTH WITH LYRICAL PRECISION AND REAL TALK, ROOTED DEEP IN THEIR BLACK FEMME CRIP JERSEY SOIL. I READ EVERYTHING THEY WRITE, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT THEY'LL DO NEXT."
