I stumbled upon Banana the Poet, aka Michele Brenton, on the Writers Digest website. I've been following her on Twitter ever since and I read the sample poetry before purchasing this book as well. I really like the mixture of serious and funny poems that are included in this collection. "Cut Glass Floor", one of the serious poems, is raw emotion...it evokes the pain of a lover's broken promise that everyone has felt at one point or another in life. "While Sincere Apologies to my Teacher" is funny and sweet, even in its brevity, which is refreshing because Michele uses only enough words - the right words - in creating her prose. I am purchasing this book as gifts for several friends, and a copy for myself!
