Poetry Chapbook

Girls, girls, girls.

BIG GIRL WITH BUCK TEETH is an exploration of girlhood as it exists for those who don’t look like everyone else. This collection of poems dissects what it means to grow up as an unwanted being, by the world, by peers, by yourself. Weaved between lines of poetry and prose are tales of being Black in Catholic school, uncovering queerness, fatness, trauma, desire, mental illness, compulsions, and more.
