Bestiary: Poems


Hey Appleberry!

It’s National Poetry Month! Are you reading any poetry this month? If not, here’s a book you might enjoy. It’s Bestiary by Donika Kelly, an African American Lesbian! The poems are wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time. If you’re not a huge poetry person, this is a good introduction to the genre as the volume is quite slim and you can just read one or two poems a day like a little morsel. That’s actually what I had to do to fully enjoy it – I’d read a poem here and then a poem there, so that I was able to appreciate each one and give them space to breathe.
