Girls Like You - Poetry Collection forthcoming 2020
My second a poetry collection, Girls Like You, is forthcoming in 2020. Many of the poems focus on female identity and the contradictory personas women are expected to embody. The women in these poems both fear and provoke the male gaze, reconciling themselves to the violence that such attentions may bring, and they are in conflict with themselves about their own desires and self-destructive tendencie. Many of the poems also explore themes related to addiction and recovery.
