Lana Del Rey has shared an excerpt from one of her new poems, Happy.
Last year, Del Rey announced that she would be publishing a book of poetry called Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass alongside a spoken word album of “freestyle poetry,” which was delayed last month. Over the weekend, Del Rey teased some of her poetry with an excerpt from “Happy” alongside a picture of the sky and a page from what appears to be the forthcoming poetry collection.
Read the poem in full below.
