God Themselves by Jae Nichelle


I love poetry that tells a story, and there were some really solid ones in here that painted such vivid scenes. Like, there's one about the simple act of making soup and how hard it is when you're feeling depressed. And there's another about comparing skin to sin. I also really liked some of the risky and interesting choices the author took, like prayers made out of predictive text or using footnotes to break up the meter of a poem. Not all of the poems were to my tastes but poetry is a personal experience. This was still a really great collection, though, with some truly noteworthy pieces.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

3 to 3.5 out of 5 stars
