I'm going to have to go back through this again, poem by poem, to truly realize the layers to this book. My favorite part of this poetry book has to do with the way the persona in each poem sounded. The voice was strong and conveyed the idea of taking a hard look at society through his persona's nonchalance and, sometimes, absurd-ness.

Roye looks at the human interactions in the topical day-to-day setting, as well as our movement as a whole--specifically concerning the media and our obsession with appearance and selfishness. There's the cynicism you would expect but also the off-handed acceptance that the narrator displayed when talking on his topics.

Altogether, I feel as if this collection has enough power to poke some well-needed holes within our viewpoints--whether it's concerning our society or ourself.
