The author and I have a lot in common. I hang out with them a lot. They always talk about the things they're writing. I like their jewelry. You should get this book.

knife I fork I book has a knack for publishing poetry that one can read endlessly, but this book even surpassed their already high standards! I cannot remember how many times I've re-read this book, especially the final poem rings in my ears with the author's haunting voice. One of the best Chapbooks I've ever come across I strongly recommend it to all lovers of snack-sized poetry.

I’ve read this little book again and again since I received it, and each time it gives something new. It’s exactly the kind of poetry I want to read right now: funny, self-deprecating, heartbreaking. I can’t wait for a full-length poetry collection from this author!
