First Preview Poem To My Upcoming Book

As you may know by now, my first poetry book is coming out this winter. I’m excited to share this vulnerable collection with you all. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy writing. To give you a peek of what’s to come, I’m previewing some of my poems for you. Here’s the first:

In Sync

My mother always told me

that the only thing a man can do right

is puncture hearts.

They will whisper the dearest things

in your ear, and place their seed in your belly.

I love you.

For months, that’s what you said.

It’s love.

But you probably said the same to her.

Twenty years later, you’ll learn

that you should’ve listened to your mom.

I care, we just don’t sync as a relationship.

How do we get in sync?
