Gummy pink clowns throw parties, nurses promise ketamine for treatment resistance, and someone is finally brave enough to ask, “what farm do they raise the fireball cows on?”
Written between the ages of 18-21, valentine, is a thematic sequel to the author's first self published chapbook prince., written between the ages of 15-18. prince. was a love letter to metamorphosis and a document of trans adolescence. valentine, is an orgasm and a collection of questions. Emerging from teendom, this chapbook is a birthday party that is 3 years long.
