This collection presents readers with three sections of powerful verse mainly about love, loss, the effort people give for both, and the thoughts when that effort feels wasted. In the first section: Emote, there’s a poem that stuck out to me called: Before Monday Comes, about the weekend being both an escape, but not from feeling or something standard like stress, instead an escape where true emotions are present. The second section: Love And Her Antitheses, has a poem called: A Little Less, showing the pressure of being needed despite its apparent attraction. In the final section: Utterance, the work that stood out most to me, and most throughout the collection was: Strange Her. Where Tinu makes the case, in a clever way, for whom a person needs in their life and how they can help. While these three poems were the ones that stood out to me the most, there are by no means the only ones of merit. I highly recommend ordering this collection, especially if you’re in a mood to think of the people you’ve let into your life.

The poems in this collection are honest and heartfelt. Bello's writing is simple and elegant. Her words are easy to sink into; I read several poems each day and they always lingered in my mind after I put the book down. I was struck by how relatable the poems are. I saw myself in the words--my thoughts, feelings, and experiences reflected back to me. My favorite thing about these poems are their transparency. Bello invites her readers to join her journey. By opening her heart to us, she gives us the opportunity to feel. She challenges us to lean into our hurts, our darkness, our hard questions. Overall, this collection was a delightful debut and I am looking forward to following Bello's poetry in the future.
