i reached inside
& sculpted some

Tough subjects tackled with prose. Yeah, I’ve seen the bitter tumblr-related reviews and yeah, I get it. The author is a little too fond of hitting enter and it might not be ‘highbrow’ enough for all the poetry snobs out there but I enjoyed it. My inner emo kid appreciated the little throwback feeling this collection of poems inspired.
