Every once in a while I read something that seems so brutally honest it almost makes me shy. The poems in this collection approach that emotional state. "Relapse" captures a nervous breakdown with a panic reaction that left me rubber legged, "Doctor Bastard" takes on a sadistic therapist who thinks he's an exorcist, "Getting Your Money's Worth" captures stealing food while in a hospital. These are real poems, honest poems, full of life and weird worlds and therapy.--Oberc
