About the Book

Even If I’m Not Here, author Gabby Baba’s second published collection of poetry, presents verses that explore human life in all its aspects, considering our complexity when we are at our most unprotected.

Through vibrant description and stark imagery, she strips the body of language to its flesh, exposing humanity’s most untouchable experiences. With vehemence, Baba dives deeply into close observation and imagination of life, unafraid of either vulnerability or villainy. Her poems allow us to lose ourselves in human emotion and become part of something larger than the words themselves. They seek peace in times of solitude and embrace a flawed world filled with tragedy and dysfunction, revealing a young and restless soul wandering the world.

Compelling and heartfelt, this collection of poetry takes a vivid and imaginative approach to the examination of human experience and sexuality.

Remember These Words

People aren’t mysterious.

I’m not mysterious.

You’re not mysterious.

Stop trying to be interesting.

Be interested.
