"my body is open sea & I am the reflection I do not / see in it"

A poetry chapbook by a 17-year-old Nigerian poet about the perils, anxieties, and alienations of being young and queer, of feeling monstrous, feeling winged. Blurbed by Kaveh Akbar, Chen Chen, Jayy Dodd -- I expect we'll be hearing more from this young poet in years to come.
