When you're dumb enough for long enough, you're gonna meet someone too smart to love you, and they're gonna love you anyway, and it's gonna go so poorly, Neil Hilborn writes in his debut full-length collection, OUR NUMBERED DAYS. In 2013, Hilborn's poem "OCD" went viral, and has amassed over 11 million views to date. While this collection ruminates on love, heartbreak, and mental illness, these poems are anything but saccharine. Hilborn uses the same humor and self-deprecation that propelled "OCD" to success in order to make his unmatched vulnerability all the more powerful. Ultimately, Hilborn is a poet of the people: his work is accessible, honest, and entertaininga revitalizing entry in contemporary poetry.

I absolutely loved it! 10/10 I recommend
I was kind of iffy about spending the money considering im not a huge reader. But definitely worth it!!
Every single one of these poems brought me to tears. These poems are inspiring, relatable and amazing in every way. I've never had literature touch me the way this entire collection has. I will re-read this probably until I've memorized them all. There's something for everyone in this book, I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of poetry
