Genre Poetry

My Rating 👌👌👌👌

Visceral, and mildly erotic, collection of poetry that is experimental, particularly in poem Offering, and has some dialogue. Alongside the poetry is longer pieces of writing, and photographs. Certainly a book for the senses, with tender feelings, and fruits. The opening poem Mango 

Parting the exquisite flesh

as juices moisten her fingers

If you hadn’t read the title of that poem first, you might have done a double take. 

Diaspora is a great poem about a moment in time.
