Poems for Chelsea Manning (2018)

I wrote this small collection of poems in the 6 months following Chelsea Manning's first release from prison in 2017. You can download it here, if you'd like.

I had the great pleasure of reading a few selections at Left in LA 2018.

Here's a sample poem from the zine:

love poem for chelsea manning

i want to run my fingers through your hair
still short by military mandate
i want to stare into your eyes
haunted by weeks of solitary confinement
i don’t know what you need
but i want to give it to you
