    Shelves: poetry
    The book starts with such intimate and plaintive appeals to emotion and empathy and humanity. And almost as if to mirror the stages of grief, the poems then take on a sharp edge and new reality. It's a book of big events and ideas.

    Some of my favorite moments:

    But it was God who painted you
    on the word like tears down
    the face of a clown.

    the moon kisses the sun's ass.

    a child dies and
    it's as natural
    as a flower blooming.

    One mustn't imprison mystery in a phrase.
