    • Lip • We went to visit an old woman. She had recently lost a nephew or a grandson, forget which. We were sitting at a table in the kitchen having tea, and the woman was lamenting that so many bits of her were falling off. I asked if there were any she could show us. She took hold of her lower lip, which I now saw was unattached to the rest of her face and just propped there against her mouth. She handed it to me on a plate. It did not look appetising.

She took hold of her lower lip, which I now saw was unattached to the rest of her face and just propped there against her mouth. She handed it to me on a plate. It did not look appetising. To oblige her I took my knife and fork, cut off a small piece and started chewing it. I chewed for a long time. I sat there smiling at the old woman, tormented, because now she had no lower lip, her bottom teeth were exposed as she spoke, all this and if my life depended on it I could not eat what she had given me.

    A refreshing perspective on relationships and purpose I liked the way the Emily encourages us to look in a new way at our expectations from relationships, coping with loss and welcoming change. Her poems reflect the purpose and worthlessness of our thoughts making it an intriguing read...

    The 2* is definitely because I chose to read this as an audiobook rather than a physical book. I usually adore poetry but this reading of it was far too fast and emotionless for me to get much out of it. I may re-read this in a physical form where I can take my time and really take in every word and I’m sure my rating would increase.

    Gorgeous writing with a sense that so much we do is misunderstood or misread, beautiful.
