    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBIThat was uick which I expected as it's not even a hundred pages The Fix is a collection of poems I found as utterly engaging Once you read a poem you can't help but be excited or wonder what the poet will talk about in the next poem All the poems describe moments from the poets's life but they were vividly but creatively described that only a good poet can do The poet's language was lyrical musical but sharp Lisa Wells certainly not only proves she's a poet but also that her words her beautiful complex words can hurt and strike deep too as they spoke of something of truth in her and so it became truth to the readers as well These poems are haunting and I know i'll reread this soon And look at that cover I loved itI have to have a hard copy for my shelf as I only read this as an e copy granted to me by

    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBIDisclaimer Received a free digital copy of the book through Netgalley To endure thisapparatusall I have to do is lastThis poetry collection thrived on being abstract yet vivid in its use of description in every poem Every poem was a uniue journey separate from all the others Admittedly some flew right over my head but I still very much liked reading the words and trying to decipher what they meant to me A perfect break from all insta poetry I'd say and something I look forward to having on my shelves Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to read a confident bold and exuisite play on wordsFavourites

    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBIFull and luscious as a grape before wine making or a moon before love making the poems in The Fix live in a roadside space that’s earthy sensual erotic and wild Lisa Wells writes by feel shaping kneading and bending the line the way a potter builds a ceramic vessel from the bottom up coiling around a central idea until it’s solid visible and ready to be marveled at

    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBILisa Wells is a poet who understands language to be elemental a means of self immolation These lyrics sear Their force is the sort that destroys the false idols that are our prized illusions our former selves Wrought of words as ruthless as they are musical these poems demand to be heard They afford us one of art's most necessary services not the bolstering of ego but the dissolution of it In its place we are left with the ashes of our own mortality rendered in verse

    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBII love poetry and when I came across Lisa Well's new poetry collection I knew I had to read itThe poems are of different topics The flow is also different from poem to poem Sometimes it's slow and smooth languid in its flow Other times it's fast and wild I could visualise the scenes the poet describes through her poem It did take me some time to truly understand what she was trying to speak of but that's the beauty of poetry as you keep reading them again and again the meaning and the thoughts become clear eventually

    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBIThis collection of poetry takes the everyday and turns it on its head exploring from every angle I enjoyed this collection because it takes a bit of a risk when it comes to word choice and description putting in words and phrases that uickly let you understand that you don't know where the next line will be going Although it is a uick read it is definitely something that will linger with you awhile Book provided by NetGalley

    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBIWhat a book Wells' lapidary lines peel the paint off of uotidian life to reveal the uiet violence beneath a trash can is rolled down the driveway by a grave valet; a woman waits in a truck stop among shotguns and platicised bass while local detectives search for a killer and heavy rigging drags the auaduct for evidence The speakers of these poems are tired they've been there and regard the world with a mix of rapture and the middle finger trying to reconcile the loss of love and loss of life with the mandates to make love and make art Each little fix is temporary and the big Fix remains spectral its final x carved in the air by Wells' sharp blade

    eBook The Fix PDF/EPUB Ç ã completewoman.co The Fix MOBII really enjoyed this collection Lisa Wells is not a poet I'm familiar with but I will watch out for her in future Not every poem struck a chord with me but the ones that did really resonated Let me uote a few lines In the park adjacent the crematory there is a toddler hidden in the folds of her stroller Only her hands are visible kneading the air there's a wound in me and everyone knows you should never trust what comes to you limping marching bead by worried bead upon my rosary The language is beautiful and the choices of imagery are just perfect and I recommend this if you are looking for a new poet with a little bit of depth but still accessibleI was given a copy of this book by Netgalley in return for an honest review
