Zachary Schomburg has created one of the better, more creative poetry collections of the past decade. His imagination stretches the bounds of most poets, creating spectacular mini-worlds within each piece, and weaving them cohesively throughout the overall theme in the story. His collection is imaginative, unorthodox, developing a quiet but strong narrator, and his lost woman, who takes on many forms throughout. This is one of the most humorous works I've ever read period, with many poems giving that magical moment of laugh out loud at writing that rarely jumps off the page anymore. It is also subtly quite serious at times, and his endless cleverness and word choice is unmatched. The entirety of the collection has a strong cohesion about it, and great quiet questions about love, humanity, and in some ways sanity as well. Anyone whose a writer, or just generally interested in a different form of poetry, one thats not so standard, and takes several reads to fully appreciate I'd recommend. Being a writer myself, I love the poignent messages, and striking, current style of narration, that has rarely impacted me, and inspired me, such as this collection has.
