“This mind is vast, ever shifting, and wonderfully queer.”

Praise for Did You See My Eyes Mum

“This mind is vast, ever shifting, and wonderfully queer. Did You See My Eyes Mum challenges what poetry can be and shows us what poetry is. Green is a thrilling voice who makes you feel like you are seeing something truly new.”

~ Stephen S. Mills, Lambda Award Winning & author of Not Everything Thrown Starts a Revolution 

“Jazzy Green’s poetry collection, Did You See My Eyes Mum, is not one for the faint hearted. […] this is a world where Green tells us that they are here. Green’s poetic voice reminds us that one must turn to the body and find what it means to be alive as we travel through the spirals of life to ‘FUCKIN’ FEEEEEL / something!’”

~ Donnelle McGee, author of Naked 

Jazzy Green

Jazzy Green– a UK poet, artist, and activist– hangs their hat, as well as their heart, anywhere they land. Poetry has always been a means to understand being, in all its forms, beyond the academic institution. Trying to shape a voice that’s real in a sea of contra-sounds is a journey forever unfolding, and one that must be, they believe, stamped by all that they are. Their words aim to be relentless, unapologetic marks, like cigarettes stubbed onto your skin. Then sometimes, afterwards, a kiss of forgiveness; a breath or a break. Themes that pervade are entirely entangled and this is how they wish to be seen. Anxious attachment, neoliberalism, consumption, queer desire, absence and fullness; within the knot, they hope there’s something you can find. For more of their work, check out Slimy Mind, a Substack that has absolutely no schedule and thus comes raw. They also endorse your full-fledged support for new words {press}, who are re-writing the boundaries of publishing in its links to capitalism and heteronormativity and so much more. Come along for the ride and everything you don’t know yet.
