Knot Body by Eli Tareq El Bechelany-Lynch
Eli Tareq El Bechelany-Lynch is a queer Arab poet living in Tio'tia:ke, unceded Kanien'kehá:ka territory (Montreal).
Bringing together poetry, essay, and letters to "lovers, friends and in-betweens," Eli Tareq Bechelany-Lynch confronts the ways capitalism, fatphobia, ableism, transness, and racializations affect people with chronic pain, illness, and disability.
Knot Body explores what it means to discover the limits of your body, and contends with what those limitations bring up in the world we live in.
