Rating (4 stars)
Like art, poetry is very personal in how it is interpreted and enjoyed. That said, this was an amazing collection that managed to be thoughtful, geeky, humorous and reflective throughout, depending on the poem. Although the poetry style is mostly freeform (with others mixed in), evocative language was able to conjure shifting images and changing scenes.
These are poems perfectly fit to capture the emotions, conflict and often comical nature of the 21st century.
