Thank you, K. Morris, for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for a fair review!
I’ve enjoyed K. Morris’ last two books, so I of course picked up Leaving and Other Poems. This collection is split into two sections, though not as defined. Like previous collections, the first section has more thought-provoking poems, while the second section has humorous ones.
The thought-provoking ones followed themes of birds, death, and trees. It has more of a mentality about what survives after we are gone. Through this section, there are a handful of lines that stood out as absolutely brilliant. The funny section is a lot shorter but lighthearted and puts one in a good mood.
For this collection, I do feel like some poems stand out a lot more than others. It does make the weaker poems pop out like the one domino out of line. But there weren’t too many of those.
Overall, I enjoyed this collection of poems, as I always do from K. Morris. I’m looking forward to more of his poetry!
