's review

it was amazing

From One Ruined Human to Another is a gruesome collection of self-deprecating poems which divulge a universe where a life is “a leech unraveling from a ripped out hole.” What I found most surprising about this read was discovering the chanting rhyme in parts of poems like “Blood on the Unpillowed Cases:”

These lighting bolts shiver to the core,
shimmy in the gore, you want to see
what happens if you get me down on the floor.

I didn’t say my moon was warm.
I said it was a worm
working its way out of me.

Dripping with Juliet Cook’s grotesque mastery, this collection explores the struggle between embodiment and un-embodiment. A must have for those collecting Cook’s poetry.
