I'll probably buy my another copy very soon.
The poems in this book also differ from one another not only as a result of the different literary element usages but also the forms and style in which they are written. His repeated style, however, is how he tore apart and brought back together the structures of disjointed stories and monologues. That enables him to write two different stories in a same stanza of a single poem.
He also uses a playful and humorous tone that sometimes the reader could find himself/herself enjoying his description of horrifying events such as murdered and buried children. Although it is challenging to understand the poems for the first several rounds, his different tones and sound make it an enjoyable read.
