"Shouldn't heaven be super heavy by now?"
How perfect this line suits!
This book, 'NIGHT SKY WITH EXIT WOUNDS' by Ocean Vuong is sheer brilliance! Another level!
So I have been dipping in and out of it for a while. Finally, finished reading it. Some of the lines still resonate in me.
"How sweet. That rain. How something that lives only to fall can be nothing but sweet."
And yeah almost all of it is just a wow, poetic excellence personified in every bit I'd say. And I honestly wonder if someone can write this deep, with every line, a figure of speech, with spellbound fantasy.
This book has got too much language, vocabulary and imagination to deal with. yet, a heart open in your hand. something beyond beautiful. Absolutely amazing choice of words n Vuong's poetry is mesmerizing n unbelievable! This is one to reread over & over again.

Four stars, though, because most of it sounds rather good. So it's probably something important, for people who understand.
I am content with the book but cannot excuse the delivery way.
You want to read modern poetry at it's finest - here you go! :D
