love makes you pretty is a collection of poetry devoted to grief. spanning over a period of nearly seven years, these poems are filled with autobiographical depictions of hatred, mental illness, sexuality, and obsession. clinging to love and all that we dare to keep, it shows the promise of abandonment and how we as humans learn to adjust within a tragedy. made up of sixty two poems, love makes you pretty is violent, paralyzing, and desperate; a fever dream that "will not live in a burning home."
