Where It Will probes the struggle for acceptance in an individual’s history, the tension and disconnection with his gay partner and friends at pivotal times and one’s place in the family, coupled with the loss connected to the past. The poems reflect on what the mind stores, rewriting a biography to make sense of the present and how you discover yourself in memory.
