"to survive means forget, means to misremember, dismember
the old shadow room. don’t make me live without—I speak
to no one in particular."

Poetry is always a mixed bag - people see different things in different arrangements of words and it either speaks to you or it doesn't. It's more emotional. I really loved this collection of short poems - I reread a few of them to glean their entire meaning - beautiful.

I loved this short little chapbook of poetry. Each one reads like a slightly warped, darker version of fairytale dripping with sinister images and connotations. The first poem, Hex is amazing, a disturbing blend of sweet and gory. Covet is amazing as well. I especially enjoyed the line like doll blood, doll in a pale sheet. Actually, all of the poems are amazing. Please can I have some more?

Unoriginal. Slightly above average tumblr type poetry. Nonetheless well written and put. No sense of uniqueness to the author. 2.5/5
