    I really wanted to like this book I don t know Sandra Simonds personally, but from following her on social media she seems like a super cool person Unfortunately, this collection did not deliver for me The sonnets in this collection are not traditional in the slightest, which I am okay with I do like modern poetry and I m not opposed to bending the rules Yet the modernization of these sonnets was not up my alley For example, one poem has multiple heart icons, one poem has excessive fuck s I really wanted to like this book I don t know Sandra Simonds personally, but from following her on social media she seems like a super cool person Unfortunately, this collection did not deliver for me The sonnets in this collection are not traditional in the slightest, which I am okay with I do like modern poetry and I m not opposed to bending the rules Yet the modernization of these sonnets was not up my alley For example, one poem has multiple heart icons, one poem has excessive fuck s, and another has a YouTube link A lot of the poems were too casual trivial for me, or just not focused on subject matter or with the tone that I prefer To contradict my past statement there are important topics in some of these poems I do appreciate what Sandra is trying to accomplish with these poems they re bold, honest, new, and so very real So, bravo for those components They re just not the type of bold, honest, real poems I tend to gravitate towards All that being said, there were some really fantastic, great lines sprinkled throughout the poems So even if I didn t love most of the poems as a whole, there were lines that I did love And there were two poems that I especially liked in their wholeness Come Back and Master of Fine Arts Even though this book wasn t my cup of tea, it certainly added diversity to the type of poems I read These are completely different than anything I have read before

    Sandra Simonds earthy dramatic monologues come in fourteeners, which she characterizes as sonnets, though few of them share the devices or conventions most readers will associate with the high form of sexual practice initiated at court Eccentric in their movement, only occasionally narrative, Simonds would prefer a sound tripped hurtle toward the sentence and hang the consistent p.o.v Next, make me a lost mutt by calling animal control Put fur in one corner and then follow her wag to t Sandra Simonds earthy dramatic monologues come in fourteeners, which she characterizes as sonnets, though few of them share the devices or conventions most readers will associate with the high form of sexual practice initiated at court Eccentric in their movement, only occasionally narrative, Simonds would prefer a sound tripped hurtle toward the sentence and hang the consistent p.o.v Next, make me a lost mutt by calling animal control Put fur in one corner and then follow her wag to the shelter Animal Kingdom There s an easiness in the errs and utz here that gives me confidence, but also, typically, Simonds hurtles past lexical sets to build her types, the persons she only reluctantly satirizes Like your husband saying Good luck with your life, a rare Florida orchid gets drunk on doomsdayThe detail about the husband is just stranded, it doesn t amount tothan a candid sly joke, ostensibly at someone s expense The poems feel poured out, and sometimes the lid doesn t come off without a struggle that s spilling the poet s collateral associations Some may go for the demotic, rough hewn self exposure, but satire is a blunt instrument in these poems

    A new word for this book heart dark Simonds writes about everything and anything, politics to family to love, easily transitioning from cutting truth to touching hope, spanning Florida to LA I devoured this over 1 elliptical workout If you like Bernadette Mayer and Alice Notley you will also love Sandra Simonds Fuck all I say say all I fuck.Fuck the octopus, the kangaroo,the summer grass, idiotic and swirlinglike a mind of neurons that look as lostand despondent as sperm in tissue 63
