Whiskey, Words, and a Shovel I Reviews
I could relate to many of the poems since I've never even been in a relationship, therefore have never been truly heartbroken. However, there were some that just spoke so deeply to me💕
If I could give this less than a single star, I would.
This is not poetry. The fact that this was published, and went on to be given rave reviews by readers near and far, is awful.
The fact that this is a publishing success makes the publishing world so much more inaccessible for women and not straight people who actually write anything that means something.

I deeply enjoy poetry and am quite new to reading poetry as well. I like the concept of writing all of your feelings on paper. Coping by turning an art out of words.

I’m glad I decided to start hear with his collections. I can’t wait to get Whiskey words & a shovel II to see how this story continues.
