Read full description of the books:
I’ve read this short poetry book twice now (as it demands that time is spent with it and is not hastily digested) and I’m still struggling to know how to review it because it feels like any subjective interpretation I put upon it won’t do justice to the meaning and context of the poems themselves. So don’t pay too much attention to my own thoughts –just read this book and get to know the poet for yourself.
What I can tell you is that this is a damn good collection. I resonated a lot with some of the themes, such as: coping with inner darkness, the demons that arrive in the nights of insomnia, and life on the other side of the mirror, far down the rabbit hole.
I was also very taken with the poet’s style, which is both shot out straight from the primordial soul but also beautifully and meticulously crafted. There are poems with a fantastic rhythm to them, there are ones which are dressed up with metaphorical abundance, and ones that are necessarily simple and plain speaking.
For a short collection like this, Casey Renee Kiser packs a hell of a lot in.
Here are some of my favourite lines and verses:
“When I dress up to die/he loves me so much,/he winks his gorgeous eye. I never felt so pretty.”
“You/in your tuxedo of flags/Me/in my melancholy rags/Together,/help the cowards into suburban body bags.”
“In the end,/he wasn’t hard to kill/I just put up more mirrors around the place.”
“WHAT ARE OUR BONES/but gravel/strung together/like popcorn garland to decorate/a tree so tall, it even bullshits the clouds.”
“…We/laughed as if everything was/Real.”
“You see,/I can see what you see/but/You can’t see what I see.”
I’m certainly looking forward to reading more by Casey Renee Kiser in the future, ‘cos, for one thing, I want to know if what she sees that you don’t see is the same as what I see that you don’t see, you see?
