Poetry, chapbook, 48 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Little Figures is a poetry collection delving into themes of childhood, memory, queerness, the body, and how each of these things weave their way into each other. Each of the poems in this collection are an act of mourning what’s been lost: girlhood, faith, control. And an ode to what’s been found: home, autonomy, space. Little Figures are pieces of a person. Fragments unwanted and necessary.
