Andre Which poem in the book was your favorite??


Kayla I liked the last poem, The line "no matter where I go there is no cure for black" made me cry.

Can you describe your writing process for this poem?



Andre I used them to hone up certain points in the book. when I wrote them, I would try and think about what the subtext of the book was at the moment.

For example, in "Exits" I really try to touch on being forced to leave everything behind and the dangers of leaving your heart where you are running from.

I love the poems, but they were hard to write.
