Back Cover Blurb:
“There was a kid sitting in the back row of every homeroom you were ever in. Maybe they didn’t talk much, always had their face in a book, never raised their hand, didn’t go to the school dance. They’re the kid with the bad acne, the scar on their chin, the story they never told stuck firmly on their tongues. Every once in a while one of those kids opens their mouths. When they do we get the thoughts of those we never really thought about.”
note: The book will be released prior to the Pure Ink Poetry Open Mic!
