From April Gloaming: Socks, Cicadas, & Other Frustrations is much more than a collection of poetry dealing with inward human emotion longing for something more. This ostensible coffee-table read encompasses three individual artists’ perceptions of what it’s like to want to be loved, accepted, and understood, and also what it’s like when these things do not pan out the way we intend, all based around the idea that a queer woman is conflicted with her Southern Church of Christ’s upbringing
