These poems are unpublished and from my debut poetry collection, If God is a Virus, forthcoming from Haymarket in December 2020. If God Is A Virus is a collection of poems about the 2014-2016 West African Ebola epidemic. I am a medical doctor, poet and journalist and this collection combines documentary poems based on my original reporting from Liberia during the largest Ebola epidemic in history. I am an Emmy Award-winning journalist, a Kundiman Fiction Fellow, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer prize in 2017 for breaking news reporting. My chapbook, For Filthy Women Who Worry About Disappointing God, won the Diode Editions chapbook contest and was published in 2017.
