Lyrics is a series of twelve narrative poems written in 2020 during a pretty dark period in my life. The title “Lyrics” is a reference to lyric poetry–poetry written in the first person about personal experience. The poems in this collection could loosely be classified as lyric poems, and are written about some of my crucial life experiences. This collection also contains ideas that would eventually find their way into Polemics.

NOTE: in this version of the PDF, I have included an Afterword explaining how the poem came to be.
