WHEN I WAS STRAIGHT

"Delightful, heartbreaking, magic and real stories with a multitude of prepositions to guide us: a gifted young poet’s coming to, coming out, coming jubilantly back into self."

A life in stasis swallowed by the sea, the self skirted in tulle and willow bark, a heart dropped through a hole in the earth to land in joyful queer companionship: this collection is a gorgeous ocean journey of becoming, landing on the complex shores of identity—daughter, thinker, poet, queer—with agency and agility. Wade’s precise poems are gifts, offering insight into how we can glean what we need from the world around us as well as from our own innate knowing.
