Daniella Valz Gen's first poetry chapbook, written in English, inhabits language as a site of both agency and discomfort. The poems evaluate vulnerability, nostalgia and intimacy. In Subversive Economies, a displaced body, wrapped in funky sheets, confronts desires and longings as it harnesses the insights of its position.
