When Hollywood Comes to You explores the conflict between the story we tell ourselves about our life and the actual, everyday stuff that makes up our life, which, when looked at closely, is often surprising in its oddness, silliness, and sometimes mercy. The poems evoke the loneliness and anxiety of not living up to our life story as well as the transcendent feeling when these two lives align.
