India Yelich-O'Connor has just released "Sticky Notes."

Lorde is definitely not the only talent in her family. Sure, she's a multi-platinum pop superstar. But if we're being honest, it's not like she's a published poet. The "Green Light" singer is not down about the fact that now her mother, Sonja Yelich, and little sister, India, are on your local bookshelves. On Tuesday (Feb. 27), Lorde let the world know that "sis put a little book out," linking to India's first book of poetry, Sticky Notes

According to Blurb.com, in Yelich's debut 144-page book (which dropped on Valentine's Day), the 19 year-old New York writer "chronicles her experiences with love, travel, and self-discovery in a shifting physical and emotional geography."

India recently shared one of the poems on Instagram, "Delicate Us," which opens with: 

I have to accept

that our natural language

didn't include words

silently

soaking in your honey sweat skin

limb-grazing in a velvet sea

laughing about the encylopaedias

stacked in your wardrobe

 

tuesday nights are for shedding your skin of old lovers fingerprints ----
