“Crows are Crows, Not Prophecies” – Without A Claim by Grace Schulman


Another poetry book that had me hankering for more.  Without a Claim had the kind of poetry that I have always enjoyed. Edgy, sharp and with a deeper meaning to it.

Most of the poems were linked to nature and cultures. The poems take everyday things, common-place occurrings and turn them into something that is not very common at all.

Most of them are so good, they are insane. Since the book is still unreleased, I’m not sure if I’ll be allowed to quote verses, but some had such a big impact on me that I went around the house repeating them loudly. The one in the title being an example.

Regardless, I have a whole of ideas thanks to Grace Schulman, whose poetry has opened a million different windows in my mind.
