    One thought on “DIG”

    1. This reminded me of just how much I love poetry. I love how poetry really allows the writer to break down and show the reader something so personal and sometimes ugly/beautiful intimate things in their life. Some made me smile, some made me cry. Unadulterated realness is what this is. You close the book having felt that you've seen a piece of a person, part of their heart and soul, which is exactly what it's meant to be.Plus, the cover is amazing; the word is actually cut out and what you see in [...]

    2. Very personal self-revealing poems that expose the poet and his relationship, but in that relationship the reader sees himself. Are we all so predictable? Gay throughout. It is often about love, caring. Love poems!!!
