Kapil lives in Colorado where she teaches writing at Naropa University's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, as well as Goddard College in Vermont. She has written three full-length works of poetry/prose: The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers (Kelsey Street Press, 2001), Incubation: a space for monsters (Leon Works, 2006), and humanimal [a project for future children] (Kelsey Street Press, 2009). "Wet, wet, green, green. I mix with them and prosper. A baby! Sticky then my mumma licks me clean. Best is brown next to yellow. Best is blue, then brown. Best yellow. Where will the sun go when it's finished?, I ask my mother. Through her skin. So red she is. The sun goes into the ground." From humanimal.
