Review: Blue Bird

Blue Bird Blue Bird by Magda Ayuk
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Magda Ayuk's collection Blue Bird is poetry that explores the self--how we love ourselves, hate ourselves, and how this impacts relationships outside of ourselves. The collection contains many shorter pieces, some only a line or two.

What stood out about this collection is the repetition of images. Two images that kept resurfacing was fingers (what was on fingers, what was being licked off of fingers) and food. These images appeared in wildly different ways, which was interesting to see, but the repetition did become a little flat by the end of the collection.

Overall, the collection was an interesting read, but it definitely could have been more.
