1/4

Sweet River was created out of wikipedia episode synopsis of Riverdale Season One. Each title keeps the original episode name, while the poem is a mixing and removal of the words present in the synopsis. Through this erasure I was able to craft a non-linear narrative that focused on girlhood, romance, and a lesbian story. In Riverdale, though three seasons later now has a lesbian couple, the way it handles queer identity and relationship is disappointing. Instead we must focus on a world oversaturated by white cis heterosexuality. Through this erasure I am reclaiming what I never get to see in popular tv. Read all of them on gumroad.
