"to Saturn" is a book of poetry about the importance of heartfelt friendships, and learning to appreciate what friendship offers. In the learning of important aspects of friendship, to Saturn explores the progression of falling in love, though at the expense of one's mental wellbeing and self-love. In this progression, the lesson is learned while in love: letting go is not leaving.
