My rating: 1 of 5 stars

"What taste the bright world has . . . And for this, I did nothing, not even wonder."

Despite a few exceptions, most of these poems did not resonate with me. They seemed high concept in a way that I just didn't connect with. There were a few a liked and a few lines and phrases here and there. The quote above comes from "Here, There are Blueberries" which also contains these lines relevant to our current situation "You must live for something, they say, People don't live just to keep on living."
