"we're all learning to be sad and alive at the same time. to pull the hurting thing from our chests without making everybody uncomfortable."
Wanda's second collection for VA stares down the crossroads of depression, family, treatment, and recovery, unapologetically refusing answers to questions which lack them. These poems shirk clich's of self-discovery by revealing strength through their vulnerability.
"Wanda's poems feel intimate ... like activated photographs from a long-lost family album, like pill-kissed segments of pain, wisdom, and observation."
-Gina Tron, author of Suspect (Tarpulin Sky)
