Heaven or This
"Sixteen and changelings, / and I choose you in broken wings, I choose you in / burning stakes, magnet eyes, infinite amnesia, / I choose you out of untried hearts and endless / ashes, I choose you. I choose you. In the story / that matters, in the story that exists, two girls / are running, the fires forget how to burn, / and always, always, I choose you."
Heaven or This: a collection of love letters in poem form. A story of a girl who loves girls, & the beauty in that, the terror, the yearning & the warning, the endless confusion & innate peace, at once shatteringly delicate & softly visceral.
Heaven or This: a fearless, electric manifesto. A pastel incarnation of grace. The story of a girl who loves girls so deeply that it feels like loving doves or knives.
