Book Synopsis



In the vein of poetry collections like Milk and Honey and Adultolescence, this compilation of short, powerful poems from teen Instagram sensation @poeticpoison perfectly captures the human experience.

In Light Filters In, Caroline Kaufman--known as @poeticpoison--does what she does best: reflects our own experiences back at us and makes us feel less alone, one exquisite and insightful piece at a time. She writes about giving up too much of yourself to someone else, not fitting in, endlessly Googling "how to be happy," and ultimately figuring out who you are.

This hardcover collection features completely new material plus some fan favorites from Caroline's account. Filled with haunting, spare pieces of original art, Light Filters In will thrill existing fans and newcomers alike.

it's okay if some things

are always out of reach.

if you could carry all the stars

in the palm of your hand,

they wouldn't be

half as breathtaking



From the Back Cover



it's okay if some things
are always out of reach.
if you could carry all the stars
in the palm of your hand,
they wouldn't be
half as breathtaking.

With raw honesty and emotion, Light Filters In captures the varied, wondrous moments that define what it means to be human: giving up too much of yourself to someone else, not fitting in, endlessly Googling "how to be happy," figuring out who you want to be. In this powerful collection of poems, Instagram sensation Caroline Kaufman reflects our own experiences back at us and makes us feel less alone, one exquisite and insightful piece at a time.
