Oh No, Anyways! is a collection of poems that weave in and out of memories and the present. From poems written in the manic sun of late spring to ones from the cold dead of winter, Oh No, Anyways! takes writers through themes of appreciation for the world around us, finding one’s voice, and paralyzing anxiety. Oh No, Anyways! takes inspiration from the greats (Whitman to Graham and Bukowski to Melissa Broder) and attempts to communicate its themes to the world.

Much like their author Oh No, Anyways! is a collection of poems trying to find their way in the world. They are falsely confident and dripping with the desire to be approved and validated. Read this collection when the peepers start calling and the air starts to get balmy. This collection feels like a spring thunderstorm with a double rainbow at the end.
