There are nine organized sections, some are as follow: Pure Fun - Scary Animals - Love... or Not? - Just To The Left of Being Psychopathic - It Hurts - the last being Cringe Worthy Poems from High School. Halloween is a favorite and celebrated holiday introducing the first theme: the poems of "The Living Dead", "Man in the Mask", "Reaper" "The Pumpkin Guy" evoke horror-core themes of death, fright, killing, blood, gore etc. "Little Kiddies" seemed along the line of Hansel and Gretel, though was surprisingly short, leaving the reader to form their own impression.
Not all the poetry covers horror or bizarre subject matter, though it never comes close to the traditional themes of beauty seen in rainbows or rose bushes! Included are more typical themed poems of love and longing found at the start of a new relationship: "I Give My Heart To You", "Ode To Long Distance Love", "Together in Ecstasy". The love relationship suddenly shifted to a darker side magnified in the bitterness of disappointment, and the fierceness of toxic hostility, rage, and hatred. Tomlin articulates on this negativity sharply and is unafraid to express her deepest emotions in a very dark manner. In addition she writes about "fantasy in the house of sin" with her dominatrix Mistress Lash, and love for a woman in the memorial "Nan's Poem": Nan, who loved and inspired Tomlin with her warmth and compassion.
This collection must be read with an open mind. Tomlin is correct to warn her readers in advance that her poetry isn't for everyone, especially concerning the negativity of the metaphorical murderous and graphic violent descriptions (associated with horror). There is still an element of confessional realism where Tomlin permits her readers to see the openness and truth of her humanity, as well as the introspective writer/poet. With thanks for the e-DRC value to Kylani Press, Australia for the purpose of review.
