Instinct to Ruin (2017)

"...set afire by their intentions to bring home at this point in history." -Rookie Mag

"Hope was found at the last words for me. A hope that I often do not feel..the type of hope that allows you to change. To be unapologetically you. To love yourself regardless of how much it hurts and how hard it can be. I felt free to feel vulnerable...I felt free to feel." R. Ariel, musician & author of In North America

My second full-length of poetry, exploring themes of trauma processing, family, building a home, healing in community, and heartbreak as a teacher.
