Cost: $2.99 (As of This Post)
Official Description: In this flirtatious and insightful collection of verses, Christina Grey’s poetry explores sensuality, culture, mental illness, relationships, and sin with passion and verve.
Whether her playful and evocative voice is delving into the causes and cures for attraction and repulsion, considering crime and insanity, or wrestling her way out of bed, this selection of work delivers with consistently high levels of emotional intensity and intelligence.
The Hole Between Mine and Yours: Liquid Logic from a Dirty Tumbler includes “act of imperfect contrition,” “A Lover’s Knot is Love or Not,” “Vanity is the Remedy for Loneliness,” “dirty snow white,” “empire waste of mind,” and 50 more rhythmic, revelatory pieces to challenge, amuse, and enchant.
My Take: Clocking in at aprox. 110 pages this book of poems is a bit refreshing from some of the overly flowery poetry that people love to read. I like poetry, every now and then, but usually it’s of the darker variety. This book has some serious sections, some funny and some very personal stuff too, i.e. trips to the gyno. I think if you like poetry with some flare then this is worth a look.
