Blackjack - 22: Modern Poetry

“An emotional, visceral exploration of desire.” - Kirkus Reviews


When I began writing not too long, this idea flourished into who I  was versus who I am. It's where I want to be, to where I was.  Blackjack -22 is how I'll get there. This is a journey wrapped in beautiful words but forget about that for a moment. Pick your card, and pull two aces...


You're only at the beginning.

Blackjack - 22: Modern Poetry is a story about self-identity, struggles, and perseverance in our modern world.

But it's also me and some poetry. Try not to overthink it.
