Three years ago, sam sax’s debut book of poetry, madness, was selected by Terrance Hayes as the 2016 National Poetry Series Competition winner. In the collection, sax explores the relationships between desire, addiction, and the history of mental health while confronting and questioning the static categories of sanity, heterosexuality, masculinity, normality, and physical health. The poet reads from madness at City of Asylum. Known for being a highly energetic poetry-slam champ, this is a chance to get fully immersed in sax’s words. As Hayes put it, “[sax] is addicted to feeling.”
