Rose Gold: Poems
Karen’s inaugural work Rose Gold is an intersectional collection of poetry reflecting the everyday life of the Latinx working class. Her own experiences with self discovery, family dynamics, encounters with new and old love encompassed around a much larger idea of what it means to be alive in the US. This collection was made for any human taking a break from the relentless hustle this modern life requires of us to recall the little things that impact us.
