Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


An architecture equally poetry, fairy tale, autobiography, and fiction, "The Room Where I Was Born rebuilds the house of the lyric from fragments salvaged from experience and literature. Though the poems are home out of the intersection of violence and sexuality, they also affirm the tenderness and compassion necessary to give consciousness and identity sufficient meaning. This collection is an achievement of courage and vision.
