There are some poems here you may come back to, but as a whole, I'm afraid the collection is fairly forgettable. If you're looking for an enjoyable collection to escape into, I'd move elsewhere; this isn't something to keep or learn from as opposed to simply reading, absorbing in a single read, and moving on from.

This is a great book. Sexy and deep and shimmering with anger and energy and eros and word play and wit.

There are a few good lines and metaphors here.
