| words that get in your teeth
An emotional and geographical journey through the memories of a now lost relationship, this poetry collection is bravely introspective and authentic. Incredibly relatable poems conjure dramatic snapshots of moments or months spent completely immersed in a love affair, with all its twists and turns through safety and warmth, enlightenment, passion, wild abandon, tragedy, insecurity, confusion, and grief. Brief glimpses of family members and odd acquaintances add texture to the melancholy love story. The locations are characters, in and of themselves, and add bright splashes of color to this collection.
