High art poetry book that will undoubtedly appeal to the masses as well as poetry fans. I enjoyed many of the pieces and am still thinking about the prose.
A super interesting read! Zilm uses her librarian work as well as her connection to bible studies and mental health to create thought provoking pieces on the way we interpret language and ourselves. Some of the enjoyment for me was in the wittiness of the query poems as well as the gorgeous use of metaphor and visual language. Some poems get bogged down in the "wordiness" and might be a turn off for (excuse the pun) first time poetry readers, but I think avid poetry fans will enjoy the depth.
My favorite poems are: " Devotional: Hastings & Princess", "Hey! Fever", "QUERY: Is it true I can get any book online?", and "First Time Listener: A how-to guide."
