There is a certain subtlety to Arushi Singh’s poems, they do not politely knock on the door of your conscience and wait to be ushered in, they make themselves at home.
This collection opens with Syria and you are at war, with the world, with humanity but you also grieve and it’s the desolation that carries you through onto the next poem and before you know it, you find yourself listening to #mentoo.
I am not talking about listening with your ears, but with your understanding and questioning the opinions you’ve held over the years on abuse, harassment, loss and trauma.
I can’t say me too; and that is part of the problem.
It happens to men too.
Unfeminine resonated with me, so did Never Argue with a Spoon because if there’s one thing that in most cases hinders the progress of humanity it’s got to be policies and bureaucracy.
I came across this book on Amazon as I was looking for some poetry books and decided to read it. It’s a good collection of thirty-six poems or so that do pack a punch and for a start, it’s a great read and I do hope to read more of the author’s works in the future.
