poetry, chapbook, creative writing
In this full-length poetry chapbook, I explore themes of young adulthood, introspection, identity, and memory through a framework of parallel realities depicted with surrealistic, visceral imagery. In working on this project, I pushed myself to write more vulnerably and to embrace craft elements such as litany, line breaks, and space on the page. The result is a deeply personal collection of poems centering around my headspace in my final year of college as I look toward possible futures and reckon with impossible pasts.
