Joey De Jesus is a 3000-yr old manticore with a dark agenda and a glamouring amulet that is slowly losing its luster. Gender? An open portal for unclaimed souls. Spirits so powerful, that despite the fact that Joey is a phantom plethora, you can still glimpse Joey whispering to your shadows as they betray to them your secrets. Joey is also a recipient of the 2017 NYFA/NYSCA Fellowship in Poetry.
