When you're dumb enough for long enough, you're going to meet someone too smart to love you, and they're going to love you anyway, and it's going to go so wrong," writes Neil Hilborn in his full debut collection, OUR NUMBERED DAYS.
In 2013, Hilborn's poem "OCD" went viral, and has garnered more than 11 million hits to date.
While this collection rumines on love, anguish and mental illness, these poems are anything but saccharine.
Hilborn uses the same humor and self-loathing that drove OCD to success to make its unparalleled vulnerability even more powerful.
Ultimately, Hilborn is a poet of the people: his work is accessible, honest and entertaining, a revitalizing entry into contemporary poetry.
