Such a wonderful collection. An enthralling blend of humor and the human condition. These poems drive and pull you until they stop you up with a surprising thought or a phrase of wry wit.I love the perspectives she takes, example: a poem written by a shark during shark week as if it were an actor. Who thinks of that?! Also, it's really good.
