Things We Don’t Discuss ~ my review

Hi All!

I recently shared with you that Maciej at No Kind of Magic had released a collection of poetry.  I have had his book in my possession for some time now and have had time to read, re-read and immerse myself in his words. 

I posted a brief review on Amazon and wish to share it here as well. 

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, provocative and penetrating poetry

55 poems that act as a dark, fun-house mirror reflecting back versions of your own pain as well as universal truths.

If you are looking for pretty, flowery poems of nature and romance–trust me, this will not be your cup of tea. BUT, there is truth here and there is beauty in that. Some may find the poems within a bit jarring and indeed this collection requires a steady eye. I found myself reading and rereading lines to gain an even deeper understanding, at times nodding in agreement and other times weeping.

This poet has skillfully flayed his own hide, leaving his insides exposed and vulnerable. I’m left wanting to cradle his trampled, yet still beating, heart gently in my hands.
