I ordered this collection after a customer recmomended it to me, and I wish I could thank them! Rudy Francisco is a force. He grapples with heartache, tender adoration, depression, and all manners of relevant injustice with a voice that is unwaveringly true and admirably vulnerable. Check out the poems "Alternatives to Bae" (pg. 22), "Mercy" (pg. 80), "I Bet the Trees are Thinking" (pg. 76), "Skin II" (pg. 57), and "12 am" (pg. 18) if you're debating snagging this book. I don't think you'll regret it! 


— From Julia M's Picks


Helium is the debut poetry collection by internet phenom Rudy Francisco, whose work has defined poetry for a generation of new readers. Rudy's poems and quotes have been viewed and shared millions of times as he has traveled the country and the world performing for sell-out crowds. Helium is filled with work that is simultaneously personal and political, blending love poems, self-reflection, and biting cultural critique on class, race and gender into an unforgettable whole. Ultimately, Rudy's work rises above the chaos to offer a fresh and positive perspective of shared humanity and beauty.
