Tigress's Latest Update
Tigress Dekko’s first book: “Where We Came From” is a collection of poems, moments, and memories as told by a recovered addict. It follows a young woman’s journey from adolescent drug addiction to becoming a struggling artist living in New York City. It is coming of age tale told through the rigor and structure of poetry; with simple aabb rhyme schemes achingly paired with sonnets and haikus, readers are held hostage in the realities, and hardships, of sobriety. Dekko’s work is deeply personal, vibrantly retrospective, and unapologetically honest. As a whole, while “Where We Came From” may break your heart, it is most certainly worth the read.
