's review

Poetry isn't my cup of tea but I decided to read this because I was very curious. The reason I started it isn't because it's popular or hyped, no, I saw it while I was at the bookstore and decided to read a few pages. I can't explain the feelings I got from them except for the big curiosity that attacked me all of a sudden. I wanted to read it.

But the thing is
I still dislike poetry.
I never understood it,
I never enjoyed it
but I love rhymes and the music
it gives to them.

In my opinion,
this isn't poetry.
Everybody can write this way,
including me.
I didn't find it beautiful
but very weird.
I like weird but still, it lacked
the magic elements of good poetry
because even though
I dislike poetry
I know what good poetry
looks like and sounds like...

Anyway, the thing that got on my nerves really bad was the fact that love and sex for the author seem to be the same thing.

Bárbara I'm so in love with this review (especially the "this isn't poetry. Everybody can write this way" part cause IT'S TRUE ???????) I'm so glad I found this. Thank you, thank you.
