HL Hazuka

HL Hazuka’s poetry tends to interact with the dynamic interference of language, often with the performing and visual arts, or in this case, with that of caregiving and death, up close as well as ecological. From a series titled The Undying Forest, these poems engage in a pragmatic crossing through worlds that inhabit their own strange light. Author of True to Life: cuttings, mechanics, & modifications, a series of translations of experimental film (Poetry Society of America National Chapbook Award) and a contributor to White Horse, a multi-author chapbook (Sidebrow Books), her poems appear in a variety of journals, including Sidebrow, OmniVerse, and New American Writing. She lives in San Francisco, CA.
