takahe thank u’s
susie, for being my #1 babe and confidante, and for helping me edit at least half of these poems while i was writing them, mat for being cool bf, sam for designing the layout for free when you were busy as hell, willis for telling me not to quit writing when i wanted to, lucy for being my hypewoman, spencer for soliciting me to put together this manuscript in the first place, even though that didn’t work out, sara for making me feel like this book mattered when i thought it didn’t anymore, jeremy for publishing me and working really hard i appreciate it a lot, guillaume for your feedback and support, and laura, crispin, ashleigh, joe, angela, dan, stephen & nat for being my pals. also i forgot to mention kelly schirmann who did the cover, looks so good thank you!!
had this moment at stacey’s book party where it really hit me how she actually made a book and how that’s actually a huge deal. many of the pieces in this book take me back in some instagram filter nostalgia way but also make me feel ~okay about the future. so so proud of this gal & very humbled to have been a small part of takahe.

Beware of escaping steam.
SE19 The (Victorian) Dinosaurs of Crystal Palace Park
This dino guy & his mates inhabited the park in my suburb in London. They’re what people used to think dinosaurs looked like.
"Sculptor and fossil expert Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins and founder of the National History Museum Richard Owen erected the model dinosaurs when the park first opened”
