Review: ‘milk and honey’ by Rupi Kaur
Let me start by saying I love this book. I love the words on these pages. I think they are raw and honest and relatable.
I see Kaur’s poems all over the internet. They are trendy and Tumblr-friendly. That does not mean they are bad. That means they are relatable. And to me, if you can capture something abstract and make it something that everyone wants to share, that is good. Even if the words are simple and the meter is mixed and the verse is basic. It’s just good poetry.
Kaur breaks this book down into the stages of a relationship. I think it’s lovely. It’s pure and the words will heal your heart — even the sad ones.
