Previously I was involved in motorcycles and now in bicycles and there was some bad poetry on both. Seeing that, I didn't know what to expect from a collection poetry on modern life. The chemo and recovery poems are very moving. Family, the comfort of tea, and a racy chocolate poem bring everything together. I can't remember being more pleasantly surprised by a book. A very rare five star rating from me.
