I don't read anywhere near as much poetry as I should and I always say I'm going to change that. I'm glad I got a chance to make this one part of that. Clements has a unique voice.

It's a very unpretentious kind of intimacy, natural seeming without an obvious amou...more

In response to popular demand, I have released Apollo Weeps in a second edition with minor revisions and available in both print and digital formats. The book is a collection of poetry, prose, and journal entries focusing on the journey of one woman's transition into adulthood. It is a sequel of sorts, with Generational being its first half.
