Did you know that I had this book on hold at my library for FOUR MONTHS before they emailed me and told me that hoopla is a thing? There’s no wait for books on hoopla, so thanks, guys. Anyway, this collection of poetry is okay, but I think I preferred Milk and Honey. This felt really similar to it and while there were some poems that really stabbed at my heart, the majority just… didn’t.
I think my favorite was the underrated heartache because let me tell you, a thing no one tells you when you move halfway across the country is that even the best friendships are super difficult to maintain. I only talk to one of my friends from Wisconsin with any regularity anymore and it breaks my heart.
Anyway, it’s fine, I checked off a box on my reading challenge and I’m ready to move on.
