Three Poems, Adirondack Review, 2017

“First Deaths” is inspired by growing up on a farm and witnessing the gruesome yet beautiful ways of nature.

I wrote “Fisherman’s Wool” after my parents gifted me and my sisters Aran sweaters from Ireland and learning the history behind these sweaters.

“To a Moth” is a poem about the awkwardness of growing up and is based on a real experience I had raising a caterpillar into a moth.

“Sips,” Zephyrus, 2018

This short personal essay is about my dad helping me through a depressive season in college by playing video games with me. I wrote this in graduate school and published it in the WKU student journal. You can find it on page 23.
