TIME COUNTS BACKWARD FROM INFINITY
Andra Vltavín (formerly K. M. Lighthouse) is the author of Body Until Light, Time Counts Backward from Infinity, and two chapbooks of poetry. They have been published in many journals, including Toasted Cheese, About Place, and High Priestesses of Poetry, and were a winner of the 2021 DiBiase poetry contest. The poet is very involved in activism and is learning how to create better systems for people to belong to than patriarchy, capitalism, and white-body supremacy. They lead writing workshops; facilitate healing touch rituals; and believe that art, poetry, and aesthetics are forms of divinity. They live the revolutions of queerness and polyamory and are very happily settled with a nesting partner, two bunnies, and a spinning wheel at their home in Portland, OR.
