    The biggest strength Laura Yes Yes showcases in this collection is her ability to move between disparate feelings and modes of expression with ease. She makes it seem natural for poems to be born of both traditional and contemporary forms of expression while displaying a sort of dark wit even in mundane descriptions that captures an aspect of human experience I have often felt but not often seen portrayed in poetry. I highly recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys a variety of poetry form The biggest strength Laura Yes Yes showcases in this collection is her ability to move between disparate feelings and modes of expression with ease.

    i love laura, my sister for over a decade now. favorite poem in her book (today) is the last one: Imaginary Instruments of the Year 3065 an oboe of limestone, an anthill guitar a piano of ice with pulsars inside a shark’s tooth sitar with frets of basalt castanets made of a raven’s beak an avalanche drum kit, magmic tambourines hydrogen cymbals and french horns of soot a cobweb djembe a shrapnel tuba a choir of clouds a human voice. :)

    I'm usually a bit wary about whole books of poetry. That being said, this book was all about odd thoughts popping up in weird places. I kept meaning to read just one poem...and then I just kept reading! It was as addictive as cocaine (not that I've tried it) and was a super interesting read!
