LateNightKnifeFights
Tonight is her mutherfucking book launch “Late Night Knife Fights” published by Lyrical Myrical Press and edited by the sultry Lisa Young. It is a collection of poems surrounding themes of travel, violence, and sex. So it’s kinda like getting a midflight hand job from someone with really sharp nails, but it feels soso good. She hopes you might buy a copy.

She is happiest onstage.
