Poetry, chapbook, 24 pages, from Bottlecap Features.

Maladaptive Daydreams, the debut poetry chapbook from non-binary, queer writer, musician, and artist Coe Colette, delivers a visceral punch to the gut as it confronts societal taboos and dismantles facades with unyielding honesty. Through gritty imagery and piercing prose, this collection fearlessly explores themes of loneliness, love, longing, and loss, defiantly shouting "FUCK YOU" to their demons in defiance of societal norms and expectations.

Renowned musician, artist, and author Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu hails Maladaptive Daydreams as "an extraordinarily deep and frank exploration of the complications, burdens, and incisions of abuse, food, social politics, home, and sexuality. This work is profoundly worth exploring and pinning to your own heart."

Meet Coe Colette (they/them), a queer, non-binary artist, writer, musician, and mixed-media creator who has lived a thousand lives in their 30-ish years. Exploring the weirdest corners of the human psyche, their works have been featured in prestigious publications such as Poet's Choice, Querencia Press, The Century Foundation, and the upcoming anthology Sparks by Chimera Projects. Their art has also been displayed in exhibitions at Las Laguna Art Gallery. Looking to the future, Coe has several exciting projects in the works, including poetry releases, art chapbooks, and an EP set to release in 2024.
