Untethered is a chapbook of poetry comprised of two main sections. These sections are differentiated between active addiction and recovery. The first section is called 'many small deaths' due to the orgasmic relief of drug use. The second section is called 'upon awakening' which is a reference to how recovery begins and renews each morning. Themes include the transformation from adolescence to adulthood, addiction, cancer, sexual abuse, healing, recovery and connection. Research was conducted from personal journals I have written since being a teenager, which have been adapted for use within the first section. This work is experimental, playful and deeply personal. It is intended to cross the intersection between the personal and the political, and to put the reader in the shoes of an addict.
