Poūkahangatus by Tayi Tibble

Poūkahangatus by Tayi Tibble

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Poetry (& how a person responds to it) is a very personal thing.

There just might be too much of a generation gap between myself & Ms Tibble for me to really understand/enjoy this collection.

I can appreciate the rich use of language & provocative nature of many of these poems. Some of the descriptions were indeed wonderful.

But Vampires versus Werewolves was just tedious and there were too many prose fragments. Some, but not all of them were poetry differently presented in a different way, but I’m not a fan of fragments. Just padding.

This cover designed by Xoë Hall was just gorgeous & was what made this slim volume jump from the library shelf into my hand.
