A gay poet deeply influenced by films, Faizal Deen attempts to retell a story of adoption and immigration through filmic language and through the violence of sharp edits and splices. He explores what it means to live in identities that are truncated and where, rather than mourn such slicings, individuals come to celebrate states of becoming something else entirely. There is, of course, a sadness to his poems, a melancholy and even states of madness, but there are acceptances of diasporic struggles, and for this poet those acceptances are the result of his sexuality, his desire to make art, and a curiosity about the ways in which the Caribbean and its signifiers might spill out into the larger world.
