Shelves: lgbtq, poetry
a collection about family, in all its forms--whether that's a father, a mother, a friend, a community, or a pop star that resonates with you. really fun, playful use of language. a good sense of humor, but also has some really poignant and reflective moments. proudly and loudly gay in the best way.

loved "rock river, vermont," "daddy," "masculinity," and "mother medusa."
