Origami Dove

Origami Dove - Susan Musgrave

As far as "dark poetry" goes this was perhaps the darkest collection i have read so far, especially the fourth section of this book - "Heroines" - with a very complicated back story behind it. The darkness is the very strength of this collection and the reason why i loved it so much. I loved the dark humour, the fact that this book made me chuckle or mumble "That's so true" under my breath while reading it. This is the kind of poetry I love and would recommend to anyone. It's raw and real with all of its unfiltered pain. It's honest and at times confused by the issues of life. It's spectacular and unforgettable.
