Publisher Marketing: Welcome to Midland is a queer coming-of-age narrative in verse set against the contested backdrop of conservative small-town Texas. These linked poems, broken into four sections that explore the cultural and natural history of West Texas (from the horned lizard to dirt storms to Laura Bush's car accident), lasso together events and movements from across eras and spaces to create a tenuous yet strong sense of place.

Giving voice to secrets and silence, Welcome to Midland builds a path for the formation of identity out of community, family, and legend.
