    I have been on a poetry kick for a while now, and have read some fantastic collections. For me, this was not one of them. Poetry is so much about personal taste, and mine leans towards the lyrical yet personal, each word chosen to compliment the whole. Metaphors are a beautiful device,...

    One of those poetry books that is very well written, but there's something that keeps me detached from it. ...

    a solid 4.5/5 Some really beautiful detailed sections and nice mixes from longer pieces to one page. Will be picking this back up in the near future to glean more beauty from it. ...

    Brilliant piece of work. Sublime! ...
