The Chaos of Longing - K.Y. Robinson
This book was okay.

I wasn't a huge fan of the format and style of the poetry. To me they did not have a nice flow. They felt more random than actually thought through and planned.

I liked that the book was divided into four sections: inception, longing, chaos, epiphany. This helped to separate the concepts in the book. However, because they were divided this was, it was very clear how similar the poems were. Many of the poems blurred together and didn't feel like distinct works. They relied heavily on the same ideas and images.

While there was definitely heart and emotion in the poetry, they felt too quick, like little bursts of ideas rather than fully-developed pieces.

While there were a few interesting images created, I wasn't too impressed with the imagery in this book.
