In torqued sentences, detourned phrases, philosophical excavations and punishing satire, Nora Treatbaby and Mohammed Zenia Siddiq Yusef Ibrahim make war on the real world. Our Air, Treatbaby’s full-length debut (Nightboat, 2024), builds on the titular promise of her chapbook Hope Is Weird. Zenia’s bitterly ironic Tel Aviv (Porosity Press, 2021) urges a fierce opposition to the fatal logic of the present. Together, they extend the poetic language of political militancy.
