's review

it was amazing

A collection I've come back to many times, over the last 5 years, sharp and prescient and wrenching:

"I remember the touching
was softer than I wanted
and after I wanted things quiet
because I didn’t trust the skin
that skinned my little body I don’t want to be vague"

"For many years life won’t
let you in, which will only
make you think
more of it. Even time
will pass on. Time will grow
thin like a ponytail. You’ll take buses
to trains to planes.
You’ll be disappointed
it was such a short
and comfortable ride."
