      And just when I thought dystopias couldn't surprise me anymore, I pick up a poetry book about the end of the world. Vermeersch uses a variety of techniques to put his readers on edge, teasing at the chaos and unpredictability of the apocalypse. It's an uncomfortable, yet striking read with a wide range of different types of poems. Even if you aren't a poetry reader, this is a fantastic volume that is worth a read!

      Even though I didn't think every poem worked - for the most part these erasure, glosa and cento poems were great reads,. they were smooth, even and delightful for someone like myself who writes and is interested in these delightful poetry forms; so I find this book an educational, informative read as well.
