it was ok
bookshelves: poetry, small-press, didnt-finish
Read in December, 2011

I don't really get it. Everything everyone told me about this made me think I would love it. The language he uses isn't particularly appealing to me, and I don't think I really ever felt like I got pulled into any of the poems at all. There were so many lines that I just really really disliked and none that I was crazy about. I guess the big problem is that this was recommended to me as being "like Zachary Schomburg's poetry but better" and I'm not sure if there's anything I like better than Zachary Schomburg's stuff.

Poetry really is one of the most subjective art forms ever, so I can't really blame the writer or anyone who likes it. It was just disappointing because I was excited about reading this.
