Blurb

a short collection of poems, written to explore the self - inspired in part by 'The Secret History' by Donna Tartt and 'milk and honey' by Rupi Kaur; and the ancient concept of the bacchnal - "to transcend the accident of one's moment of being.'

and saints are made from gas-laden corpses
I am no Plath. I am no woman bound to die by the noose of my own hands.

May I be mad,

mad,

May I love my madness. some day, it may be all I have.
