Format: Kindle Edition
As always, don't let the star count decide for you. This is an intriguing work of some 127 short poems. Maybe three point four nine stars would be more accurate. There are many touching moments, for example, First Aids, where a heart attack is seen as a way to get embraced with artificial respiration. Some of the poems are ambiguously naughty, as in Nudity Shine and again in Clocks (your pointers!).

Most of the poems are love/frustrated love poems. In Omen, the girl wants to read his palm and he wants to hold hands - an omen. Some of the poems are engimatic, as in Accidents Page, where the girl and the relationship have problems the newspaper doesn't report. I'm not sure I'll ever fully get Wolves, but that's OK: it is a puzzle and it fascinates.

The failing relationship is brilliantly captured in the tiny poem Twilight, where darkness real and darkness of closed eyes have become the same. Again in Sad Steps, we are caught in Salehi's gentle philosophy with a touch of humour.

In the title poem, we have the amazing image: In abandoned districts,/ the melted silence flows / acute burn wounds on walls and trees as memorials/. Again in With/Out the broken relationship is humorously fixed - with Photoshop! And in Miracle, we have the pain of breakup made fresh and acute.

If you're waiting for the tiny carps, here they are. This is a translation from another language, and this fact sometimes intrudes where idioms/grammar / word order are different. For example, in "I don't know" we find this quote: `Will your stay reduce my solitude or your quit?/ Or will raise it?' I assume `your quit' means, `your leaving', but the word `will' the second time seems unnecessary, or to require the word `it' after it. You will have to be tolerant of this.
