Reviews to be female is to be interrogated
- 'Your heart's teeth' absolutely made this chapbook for me, with such amazing imagery and a powerful ending.Many of the other poems I do not understand yet, but that's not a fault of the author - I'll definitely be revisiting this when I have more time and looking deeper into it, as there are lots of themes I really rather like going on here.
- some of my favourites:'my brain is fighting back.To be female is to be interrogated.I pronounce my heartan open wound that disobeys''twisted blackberry bushes,all the sweeter for it,line the side of the forest,as we, provisionally, get lost'i also really loved the entire poem 'worship, war and toil'
