others proud and standing 
sometimes just enough to write 
sometimes, which is the real poem, we do not write at all
we let nobody have it.”

"…ie.—for the people we will be is a concatenation of gestures as much as it is a gesture in itself. This book is an entry point into understanding the psychology of artists in a world that has sped through fragmentation and wholly embraced its disintegration. What you are reading is and was conceived in a time when people began wondering what art can do beyond s(t)imulating itself. It contains artists, writers and thinkers who are both subjects of and contributors to evil, and in their work we might find moments that allow us to swim amidst the melancholy and ecstasy and rage and truncation and hope (false or real), all of which contour the parameters of this particularly untidy moment in history. I have found, in writing this text, that our days to activate change are numbered — which is not so much an indictment on mortality but on the realisation that we must spend our energy more wisely. This book is not about death but it is certainly framed by it, and the revolution which is to come is one where systemic upheaval is — as Audre Lorde once said in The Uses of Anger (1981) — driven by ‘anger, not moral authority. There is a difference.'

As a collection, Lunney's book Sucking my Tongue to Keep the Salt of You Close is tender and commanding, a generous documentation of time and desire. It recounts the melding of two beings into each other and the self into everything, slow and intoxicating.
