Jordan Castro and Mallory Whitten's CUTE is a true example of brilliant poetry, combining the warmth and naiveté of children's books with the bleakness and uncertainty of existentialist literature. The many anthropomorphic animals observed throughout these poems are cute and cuddly as much as they are nihilistic and confused.
Was able to read about ineffably depressing existential themes without realizing it because there were cute drawings of animals. Read it twice and realized on the second time how sad/meaningful/life-affirming/self-referential it was. It's like a Trojan horse or something. Great! Great collabo.
