Thank you, K. Morris, for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for a fair review!

More Poetic Meanderings follows his recent themes of exploring death and mortality. It felt like this book was about someone processing how inevitable death is. It also explores themes of nature, especially birds and gravestones, and the meaning of life. All of the poems in this collection had more of a serious tone than his previous books.

This is actually my fourth poetry book I’ve read by K. Morris, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a stronger beginning. The first poem really grabbed me into this collection. I also enjoyed the constant imagery throughout. This collection has some of his best work.

My main critique would be just not liking the ChatGPT poems at the end, but that could be more of a personal preference. I’m not fond of the service, but I do see the appeal. Those poems did give me some hope that AI is still behind humans because I found K. Morris’ own work to be much stronger.

Overall, this quick book is an enjoyable read and possibly his best work yet. I’d recommend it.

Score: 8.5/10
Average rating on Goodreads: 4.00/5
