It was real. It was real. It was real to you.
Alternating narrative between the past and present, History of Present Complaint by HLR (Close to the Bone Publishing) is a raw, and visceral collection of poetry and prose on mental illness. Post Complaint // Dirty Dishes was my favourite poem/prose. Perfection, and something not being good enough, so I keep going at it, but then being unable to return something to its original state is something I have been trying to write a poem about and Dirty Dishes got exactly what I am trying to write.
