Theo LeGro’s Comments

I wrote “Dear John” to be a love poem, but upon showing it to a trusted friend and mentor, realized it was actually a poem about loss. The fact that I so often conflate the two is probably telling. “Dress sexy at my funeral” takes its title from the song by Smog. It’s a request that I hope people take seriously whenever the time comes.
