"Rogue is focused, deliberate, and seasoned in her latest release that is a mix of poetry and prose...a wordsmith. Her command of the poetic language is unparalleled and sets her apart from other contemporary poets." —Alicia Cook, Bestselling author of Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately
"It's going to hit you below the belt. You're going to reach for the
closest stand-in lover you can find & you're going to make a home in their body
& you're going to pretend your childhood memories are hung
in his chest & you skinned your knee
tripping over the curve of his arm & you have always been here."
In Exits, Desires, & Slow Fires Goodreads Choice Nominated poet J.R. Rogue shines bright. With heartbreaking language, the bestselling author revisits unreturned love like only she can. Unforgiving pain, wanting, longing, fierce betrayal, and sweet lies feel like a second skin in this collection about love and loss.
