D. Allen is a queer & genderqueer poet, teacher, and multidisciplinary artist living in Minneapolis, where they recently completed an MFA in Poetry at the University of Minnesota. Using poetic and essayistic forms and a range of other artistic media, D.’s work explores the body, illness, disability, intimacy, the natural world, sexuality, and gender. Their work takes many forms: word architectures, painted surfaces, light drawings, textured sounds, soft spaces, slow dinners, sustained listening, tender assemblages, quiet gardening, deep breaths. They value each of these endeavors equally.

D.’s first hybrid poetry collection, A Bony Framework for the Tangible Universe, is now available for preorder from The Operating System. It will be released in February 2019.
