Featured Poetry - Demon Hickeys by Mia Poirier

Weaving elements of humor, bitterness, and earnest personal history, Demon Hickeys is Sappho meets Punky Brewster, or a window into the complications and tribulations of growing up and discovering one’s sexuality. Mia Poirier inserts herself unflinchingly into the LGBT literary community with this, her first poetry collection with The Blasted Tree. Inscribing her heart on the page, Poirier touches nimbly upon relationships, family, illness, coffee shops, and city life, illuminating the challenges of youth along the way. Her collection is available online and can be purchased from The Blasted Tree Store.
