This book is divided into two sections: Delicately Twisted and Deep in Zero. The section names are superb. What imagination awaits within a book that begins with its first poem entitled “How Many Poets Does It Take to Screw in a Light Bulb?”. O’Carroll continues with poems that examine mortality, Shakespeare, architecture and dairy products. One can’t help but admire a poet freely able to express their own original skin. From the poem “Postcard from the Afterlife”: “How cool is Heaven? Where do I begin here?” This book is a great place for beginning poetry readers to begin. It’s delightful!
