Thank you, Finishing Line Press for the ARC copy of Glimmerglass girl by Holly Warlath.
This chapbook is daring, raw and everything poetry dealing with feminine identity should be. I had a hard time pausing in between poems because each left me wanting more. But these poems are meant to be tasted and savored. They do leave an aftertaste that takes a couple of minutes to wear off, but it is the kind that is exciting and invigorating.
I especially loved “I Am Going To Find The Unicorns.” The imagery is strong and in-your-face.
“I will kneel in the dirt and read leaves like ruins. I
will put mud in my mouth to taste dwarves.”
The concise nature of chapbooks brings out the true impact of poetry as strong as this. I would love to read more from Holly, she has a new fan.
