“Go ahead. Call it love. Call it sunshine and soft, pink underbelly turned up. Call it romantic. Sugar-spun. Warm and tingling. Moth-to-the-light. A little bit of teeth. I always liked your poetry. The way you could make something that hurt seem so pretty.”

Trista Mateer, “The Poet Holds Tight to Pretense”
