    One thought on “The Drowned Girl”

    1. Almost reminds me of Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur except that the poems in this collection are much descriptive and expand upon than one topic Unfortunately, I lost interest towards the latter half of the book Overall, it s a decent collection of expressive poetry.

    2. I read these reviews and I wonder if the reviewers read the same work.The majority of this work is the sort I hate Incoherent, inaccessible, a collection of stream of consciousness sentence fragments and word jumbles that are schizophrenic and inspire nothing in me other than a confused WTF From one titled Pandora She s in the box Toy box Boxing ring Ring around the rosy, pockets full of posies And mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy.So she no, no, she will not She will not [...]

    3. Raw and exhilerating, at times too erratic, but over all, I really liked these poems Some I could identify with, some I could not It was pain filled and painful No flowery prose here if you re looking for nature is beautiful poetry, look elsewhere If you re looking for real life, real emotion it s here.

    4. This book took a long time for me to read I feel I gave it a a fair shake, but I really just feel it could be about 1 3 the length There were times when the narrator claimed to be stallingwhich by claiming such it was further stalling Maybe that was part of the point.

    5. the narrator evokes arresting images contemplates the dress of a suicide jumper the way the night sky illuminates a body Planets feast on this girl the haunting signifier of new york unsettles.
