Review: Calling a Wolf a Wolf

Calling a Wolf a Wolf 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

Desunt Nonnulla

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.)
