really liked it

I picked up this poetry book for two reasons: the first obviously being the title and cover. The second was the poem I randomly flipped to in the middle of the book and read at the bookstore. That's how I pick poetry books, in case you were wondering.

This book did not disappoint. Perhaps the poems were a little different than what I have been gravitating toward recently, but still just as mesmerizing and beautiful. Poetry, for me, is like breathing. And this particular collection felt like taking a breath of fresh air after you've been forced to sit inside all day.

"The present is not enough, will never be
enough. The future,
artificial and polite, promise you a locomotive
heading west. You feel it coming
through the patio beneath your feet.

You will arrive, someone tells you. there will be a treelined
belonging. You will finally shed the tiny aches of your birth."
