Format: Paperback
I kind of felt like I'd snuck into some back area I wasn't really supposed to be when reading these poems. Somewhere where I'd been invited perhaps, but still wasn't really supposed to be. I just got this sense of being at a level of mind below where language is abstracted to represent emotion instead of feeling it, somewhere multiple feelings (good and bad, humor and fear, lust and revulsion) occur simultaneously without contradiction. Most of these are short, but they are marvelous. I want to take the pages and rub them around on my skin.

Format: Paperback
Ana Carrete's Baby Babe is a collection of edgy, fun, and surprisingly deep poetry.

Here are a few lines from one poem (title omitted - you'll have to read the whole collection to figure out where they came from):

"the stress that we release is the product

"of not being allowed

"to feel okay

"while being honest"

There is something so genuine and playful about her poetry that, when coupled with the accompanied illustrations, the resonacne is heightened with every single page.

Carrete does a great job at making serious subjects like relationships, heartbreak, sex & sadness kind of irreverent. Many of the poems feature this kind of aloof nature that endears the subject to the reader. But it backfires when pieces appear that sharply shifts to a tone of pure anger, confusion, or fear. Also, many of the pieces are written with a dry, hollow sadness that (when compared to the other pieces) seem to be missing their punchline. Well-written as a debut work.

I was literally laughing out loud as I was reading through the book! Thanks for making me look like a weirdo at the car wash, but I truly enjoyed reading my new book of poems

Thoroughly enjoyed these poems. Felt like a mix of sandra cisneros and plath with a really comedic touch. I've also read a few of her ebooks and I think she's a unique poet, at both times precise, abstract and funny.
