Included in this collection are also various experiments with langu... more

Oil Spill is a celebration of ‘bad’ feelings. The things we feel at night when we can’t sleep. The things we struggle to say out loud. The things we feel when we’re alone. Feelings many of us experience and relate to, but aren’t often given the attention they deserve. This poetry collection acknowledges this part of us, so we can try to empty ourselves out and fill ourselves up with something better.

They have a saying, “The older you get, the wiser you become.” Well, I believe I’m wiser now and still can’t come to terms with some of my experiences. But it was real, and I lived it. Then aga... more
