The description doesn't do this collection justice. It takes on so many different voices and topics that it works very well as variations on a theme. It touches on life, reality, death, cruelty, and love. It was extremely refreshing to see goth culture represented by someone who understands it. "Katie" is easily the most powerful and memorable piece, not just for its delicate subject matter but the incredibly eloquent way the author wrote it. I was impressed by the word play and scope of the poems. I look forward to reading more.
