A reading of Jess Provencio’s you’ll never tip a go-go boy in this town again alters perspective as good poetry should. It sends you to West Hollywood, opens you to a world unknown to mainstream society, so that you can never again ignore the lost, rejected boys with whom she is so intimate. With incredible language and imagery, she sketches those you feel like holding to say, “it’s alright…don’t cry.” —Mario René Padilla author of Reaching Back For the Neverendings
