really liked it

One of the books of poetry I've most enjoyed of late. I think it's something about the tone--strong, yet whimsical, able to laugh at itself even in misery. Also very surreal. "The constellations all form in the shapes of rats/ And the world from above is blue and brown and slightly sweet smelling./ And inside God, the world of the heart rots and blooms."
