    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here 2.5 stars but I gave additional 0.5 star for mentioning Manila in her last poem.I tried my best to like it but for me, it was just really okay It is not that bad, at least The way the author writes her poetry is peculiar I still managed to like a very few of her poems, which I will include in this review soon

    A number of poems in this book are quite long, but many are also short Although it was originally written in Japanese, the translation is good Probably what you would call beat poetry since it was often recited to music by the author, who was a big fan of jazz and blues An amazing book.
