Love Her Wild by Atticus Poetry
Review: For the past year now I’ve been seeing beautiful photos paired with poetry. I was able to get my own copy this last Christmas of Love Her Wild, and after reading through it… I can’t help but think that the majority of poems were cliques and uninspiring. But I did find a few poems that I really liked and thought a bit deeper in meaning.
Although thinking about these poems a a whole (and author), I could not help but think it was an interesting view point from a male of this current generation (2000’s) writing all o this. I am looking forward to reading more of Atticus’s work in his next collection of poetry that is now out, I’m curious to see how his (or her) poetry has changed, or if it has stayed the same.
I will follow you,
to the edge of all our days,
to our very last
is that it is found when it’s needed.
who have been
through the dark.
we are made of all those who have built and broken us.
Would I? Reread? Yes. Read more of Atticus? Yes, I think so.
