I enjoyed the surgical qualities of this text. Lots of words that I associate with that arena: talk of knives, autopsy, the dismantling of a body. Maybe these words make it seem as if it's too macabre, but trust me when I say that it didn't come across that way in the reading. Instead, I say surgical. A strategic taking-apart.

This was a really good collection. I like this one, and the strengths it upholds. I've read some other work by Kanika Lawton, and I think she has really improved her writing. Excellent work!

I'm giving this one 4.5 stars.

“It tell me to touch myself to the thought of someone loving me”

“I once went out with a man who didn’t
Eat pork yet still ate me out in the back of
His sisters car. It’s funny because I was born
In the year of the pig.”

"Suck me dry and throw me up in your neighbours’ rose garden—I have a knack for ruining beauty."

My favorite out of this v short chapbook was "Year of the Pig."

The poems in this brief chapbook were heartbreakingly beautiful and honest, and left me wanting more. i will be seeking out more of Kanika's work.
