About the Book

McDonough’s latest collection is fiercely unapologetic, transforming mundane moments into witty and provocative insights that closely examine the flaws in our quick-moving society. Using dark humor, the poems address the impermanence of life and how we should always find reasons to re-evaluate ourselves as empathetic beings over our selfish tendencies.

About the Book

Nothing is off-limits in these clever, humorous poems: relationships, money, time, God, Siri, and everything in-between.
