From Whore Foods, the serialized erotica novella told via newsletter to an unconventional instruction manual How to Become a Lesbian to her super limited edition Products, poet & performer LA Warman takes many forms. If you'd like to see her human form, she'll be reading on Valentines Day at Sunview Luncheonette in Brooklyn, NY at 8pm.

Name: LA Warman   //   Occupation: Teacher   //   Age: 27   //   City: Amherst, MA   //   Astrological sign: Virgo sun, libra moon, leo rising

End of the day unwind: i typically go to the jacuzzi and the sauna at my gym. then i drink turmeric tea. i scrub my face with a towel and drip argan oil over myself. i take my pill. i put on my pink robe. i turn on my heated blanket.  i meditate. most often i use the Meditation Oasis Podcast by Mary Maddux who is my sleep mother. i fall asleep. in three hours my heated blanket automatically turns off.

Currently reading: The Erotic Life of Racism by Sharon P. Holland and the collected poems of Pat Parker, listening: the greatest hits of Mariah Carey

Current obsession: Home Shopping Network

The future/what's next: small insular communities of comfort slowly at times exploding mass culture. abolishing prisons, queer culture cementing, subverting, being The Disease. organizing in ways that we have yet to invent. organizing in ways that are unable to forget.  organizing in ways that respect and value individual bodies.

Most important failure: my failure to find a Husband quickly saved me from getting trapped in The Faith.

Personal role model: Ursula K. Le Guin
