"Why waste your life
on saccharin and plastic,
When those mature and secure
are always fantastic"

I received this book for free through the first reads program in a listing by Branch Isole himself. I own several lovely signed copies of books and I'm so happy to have this book among them.

At first I wasn't sure about the poetry, I write lyrical poetry and so I'm used to having each stanza rhyme and I put a lot of focus into the flow of my work. I wasn't sure because Isole's poetry comes from a differe

I won this book through the Goodreads Giveaways.
I do enjoy reading the odd poetry book now and again, tending to lean towards the older stuff, so I only had a little idea of what 'Voyeurism Poetry' entails.

It's been awhile since I've read modern poetry but I really enjoyed this book of poems. I, for whatever reason, am always skeptical of poetry being angsty and youthful which turns me off. This book of poetry was decidedly adult, mature, and in my humble opinon, well-done.

I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway.

“The first section almost had me in tears. The rest ranged from laughter to deep thoughts.
That’s the best I can say about any book, ‘It made me think’
