I recently read Minkman’s dystopian novella, The Island. When I found that she has poetry I needed to check it out and see how her words can translate to verse.
I was very pleased with this chapbook. Minkman poetry incorporates great imagery into her words. I also found myself finding the emotion of the poems to draw me in.
While there might not be a large grouping of poems in Songlines, I feel that it was well worth the read, and will be a book to go back to later on to experience again. Lovers of poetry will enjoy this, but I also think that shy poetry readers would also find enjoyment within Minkman’s words
