Imprints of Witness

Author(s): Josie Alexandra


Simmering through urban environments, imprints of witness, is a collection of poetry revealing reevaluations and observations, traversing ficto-autobiographical lines. ~" reserved, in that fancy place of impression ~"The poems are notations of reshuffles, moving towards spaces of holding, to embrace wisdoms of vulnerability, intra-relational being, and shifting intensities - cultivating mental wellness. Josie's writing celebrates how their non-binary identity is an important position to challenge, not only the demarcation of assumed gender, but also the underlying philosophies that conditioned how they move through life.Composed into three chapters - 'presence left pondering' // 'people move tender' // 'from a witness' - the works dig into the iterations of life; belly full up on unlearnings and learnings.Throughout the chapters there is a shifting away from the idea of passive observer to active participant, a process which resists the capitalist logic of productivity and the value system that constructs neurotypicality.The words are inspired by relationality which continually challenge, redefine and transform praxises of psychology, spirituality, education and creativity within "so called Australia's" colonial cis-hetro-patriarchy.This work succeeds Josie's collections; often, it's more about conversations, and bike lane poetry exhibited in 2018.
