I think you can find something that fits any situation in this collection. He is talking about everything & nothing, love & loss, he also says who cares if you are gay, straight, or bisexual just as long as you're happy.
"in love or out of love we are suspended as
in a limbo created by the presence of
or the lack of someone else."

As with all his other collection:
Drenched in love and longing and heartbreak.
Just stunning.
Not a bad poetry collection, but you can't really tell what he's talking about at any given he gay? straight? confused? I dunno, and frankly, am post the point of caring.
Another collection of unusual poems that are without a doubt from the heart of the author.
Beautiful, thoughtful, nice, and warm. Probably my favorite poet of all time.
Quiet, beautiful and real. Such a surprise to find, but amazing, too.
