's review

it was amazing

Juliet Cook's chapbook RED DEMOLITION is a painfully beautiful collection of poems that paint a hideously cruel portrait of love lost. What does a heart do when it's wounded and bleeding? Luckily for readers, Juliet's heart wrote a collection of poems that kicks, cries, screams, bites, and does it all with an ear for music & an eye for imagery and poetic beauty that is seldom matched: "It starts with a multi-colored glitter dress lifted up high/to show thighs wrapped with garter belts made out of garter/snakes." Many poets write with strong emotion, but Juliet Cook writes with emotion squeezed into brilliant lines full of sound and poetic beauty. Even the ugliest things she writes about turn into things of beauty in her skillful & poetic lines. Do yourself a favor and submerge yourself in her darkly dangerous yet delicious poetic world.
