Unwashed (Forthcoming)

Unwashed is a deeply personal collection of poetry centering on themes of growing up, a loss of innocence, the immigrant experience, love, and alienation. The title of the collection is a reference to the urgency of the work. These are not romantic or quiet poems; they are loud and in-your-face. They speak directly to the collective anxieties of urban life and reflect the author’s unique experience as an immigrant to Canada, his family background, and the diverse urban setting of Toronto. All these factors combine to create a tapestry of image-rich and intense poetry.
