chop it off!"
Lewington intertwines theatrical soliloquy with matter-of-fact observation. Shortly after these indicting words, she writes,
"the neighbours, I mean to face
to walk the walk
to the corner shop,
eggs and bacon
I need breakfast before I leave
The flow gushes, like water heard at a lengthy teeth cleaning, but reading this collection is much more therapeutic. I had a good share of laughs reading these poems, though the bluntness with which most of them end gave me time to think, visualize the poems as micro-movies, and reflect on what I myself should be doing to see the most out of life's daily follies.
Lewington writes, "I need to fetch the iron." I say, "Don't put this book down. It's charmingly thrilling."
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
While this poetry collection is not for me, it was an interesting and unique collection of poems that explores a range of emotions and thoughts from the author.
The Good: Some of the poems were really relatable and well written. I enjoyed the poem called Monday, Skills and CG as I found them interesting, and relevant. They were the more well-written ones and I appreciated the poetry of them. The author uses very artistic thoughts and turns of phrase to express her thoughts. It is incredibly individual and the collection will keep you thinking long after.
The Bad: Some of the poems just read as thoughts, thoughts that have poured out of someone’s brain with no filter. Some of them are also needlessly erotic and odd but that is simply my opinion and how I responded to the poems. I felt as though they were very personal and too personal to read as they made me uncomfortable.
Recommended for: Contemporary poetry lovers

and relaxing so little.”
