Hi, I’m Loré Yessuff (low-ray — yess-uh-ff). In attempt to make meaning, I write poems & prose about daily life, love, & the passage of time. For my day job, I work as a copywriter.

selected pieces:

a love letter to my mailman, and
the incomparable
camaraderie between black strangers

man repeller

prayer for meaning
voicemail poems

on abandoning capitalistic achievement to
seek the freedom of play:
interview w/ Ross Gay

the creative independent

the best $294 I ever spent:
getting my hair braided

trying to feel love-worthy
(while working at a dating app)
