Videos for the following poems are on their way:
This poem is about my experience with anxiety, and uses excerpts from a poem I wrote when I was 13 about feeling trapped inside of a box.
- For this poem I’m collaborating with pianist improvisor Craig Addy, who will be accompanying me on piano. Estimated release date, July 2017.
