Calling a Wolf a Wolf by Kaveh Akbar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
These poems are full of desire and alcoholism, identity and guilt, God and words. I love his use of space on the page because it makes you take a pause along with him.
Some of my favorites are
Do You Speak Persian?
Some Boys Aren't Born They Bubble
Thirstiness is Not Equal Division
River of Milk
So Often the Body Becomes a Distraction
(I read this from a print copy via interlibrary loan but it is available in Hoopla, if you have access.)
