“a stunning chapbook of prose poems […] that moves through the love, care and intimacy involved in making a home as two trans and queer poets. […] The language of these poems is akin to delivering a gut punch of emotions over and over again. What we call home is the kind of poetry that breaks you down and builds you back up again.”
—Manahil Bandukwala in CAROUSEL Magazine
