Everybody's A Trigger" is a working title for my new collection of poems. This focuses on my life growing up in the Rust-Belt of America. I often negotiated the existence of my identities; split between the rich souls of my blackness and the chaos of my lower-class white family. The relevance of my own battles with being a poor biracial, bisexual, diagnosed girl, is manifested through my poetry. I do not isolate my current well-beings but often refer to childhood fables. The absolutes of my words can be thought of as mystic realism and sometimes scary. I mention issues such as race/gender, mental illness, police brutality, classism, sexual freedom and life resilience. This collection came to me in my most vulnerable moments, and I hope to share my experiences and words with others.
