~ Review ~
This was a stunning debut collection. Powerful, haunting, and beautifully written. There were pieces that were delicate in nature and wrapped in wonder, and while others seemed to be read in demand. Can a poem ask its reader for such a thing? To reread the piece over, more fiercely?
If a chapbook could demand such a thing, then I cannot wait to read more of this poet's work. Well done!
