Review: Lord of The Butterflies

★★★★★

I didn’t intend to tear through Andrea Gibson’s collection of poems so quickly, at such a late hour. But now it’s one in the morning and I have been deeply moved by all of their words. I found myself in tears, filled with hope, and warmed by the sweetness of some of these poems- and then through this cycle of these emotions once again. This collection touches on gender, sexuality, love, loss, and the state of our world in an age of apathy. Navigating each topic Gibson writes powerfully and sweetly, in a way that dares you not to connect with this outstanding collection.
