My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I won this book on Goodreads first reads. I found this book of poetry interesting, I didn't have to spend hours trying to figure out what he was trying to say, like with some poetry. I don't read poetry on a regular basis and I prefer novels. So , I'm delighted when I like the poets work.
