    Read that as 3.5 stars A collection that I was interested in than liked if that makes a sort of sense It is a collection very interested in the workings and non workings, you could say of language In that, it definitely works Thought provoking Funny at points Interesting.Doesn t grab you by the heart, though And that s re...

    Plenty of good lines, but the cohesiveness of the work slants away this may be because I prefer a narrative form of poetry, but I often got lost waiting for delight rather than having it delivered the language is fantastic, but the fireworks aren t as spectacular as I would have hoped.
