Adedayo Adeyemi Agarau and Elisabeth Horan live very different lives on opposite sides of the world. Yet across the distance, they found each other, and the deep and abiding friendship born of shared trauma and a desire to feel truly seen is here, distilled into these poems. Agarau's stunning photography weaves in and out of the poems, with words and images speaking to each other about love, loss, and what it means to find a friend who truly understands you in the most unexpected of ways.
