When I made this book I was floundering for words to describe feelings of things I’d previously come to terms with. Understanding in the past that I would never be able to come out to my family for fear of rejection and other anxieties. But now suddenly it was possible and I have been, continuously. It’s a process that will never stop and will always be drowned in fears, mistakes, and poorly worded phrases that no one will really get. I wanted explore that in a short poem that was written more towards that time of fear yet still lurk under the surface that will likely still rear their head in ways I expected and ones I did not.
