Reader's Diary #3014 - Annharte: Miskwagoode

It's been a while since I read poetry and I'm not going to lie, I struggled somewhat with Annharte's Miskwagoode

Largely it was the unusual syntax that I stumbled over. Rather than sentences, the poems came across as lists of phrases or thoughts, sometimes with obvious connections to one another, some without. Still, themes and emotions seeped through and at these times I enjoyed the creativity. Otherwise, I'll take responsibility and say that perhaps I should have spent more time with each poem in order to truly appreciate what she was trying to communicate.
