Poetry, chapbook, 28 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Of You and For Me is a collection of poems involving friend-breakups, cold creek water, soulmates, and, above all else, food. While eating the collection itself is not an option, consider a dive into nineteen poems based around literature and snacks, all while focusing on indulgence in relationships and the limits we face internally. Simultaneously a procession to the kitchen fridge and a frail disposition to the expectations of others, Of You and For Me places the reader in a shaded stream, an after-hours Schnucks and a snack-filled study room in the corner of your favorite library. Live to indulge and find yourself in this neurotic grocery list.
