This is my first time reading the poet.
The poems in this small chapbook are just okay but didn’tdo much for me. Baumann is another poet who uses complex images and languagewhich comes across as pretentious at times. The poems are just okay but thestyle and language used in this wasn’t really my thing. Also, all of the poemshad the same title which was weird and didn’t make much sense to me. I don’t getit. The only poem I actually enjoyed was the third one because it made a bit ofsense.
