The Further Selected Poems of K Morris is different from his other book. In this one, the concept of death and mortality gets explored a lot, which is expected since his dog passed away recently. There still are some comedic poems toward the end but not as much as last time.
The rhyme schemes throughout the poems have gotten much better. I can tell that Morris has grown as a poet in a great way.
I do wish the collection of poems was longer. Like last time, I enjoyed more poems in the first part of the book than the second. His stronger poems are just on that side. But I also may be biased because I like poems that make me think more than ones that make me laugh.
Overall, this book is a quick, enjoyable read that makes a reader ponder mortality and have a good few laughs at the same time.
