it was ok

Beth Ann Fennelly delves into what we consider unmentionable. At times coarse, my favorite poems in this book were verses about a French Impressionist painter, which harkened back to a more elegant age. The language in this section was more than tolerable and hints at the true artistry of the poet. It is a shame that the rest of the poetry collection was not written in a similar manner. Replete with off color language and sexual innuendo. Definitely not for the younger set.
