Ez egy furcsa verses könyv – habár vannak benne szabályos versek is. A furcsa vers tulajdonképpen próza, és nagyobb lélegzetű témákra használtam őket. Vannak lábjegyzetek is ebben a könyvben (rögtön a vers után, ahol kellenek). Az egyik lábjegyzet annyira furcsa, hogy még egy képet is tartalmaz. Egyelőre ajánlanám, hogy a 20%-nyi szabad olvasást a “read online” link-re kattintva tegyék meg.
