This annotated poetry collection is more than just poetry; it's a way of metafictionally telling a story about a writer's struggles and experiments with poetry. It is the good, the bad, and the incredibly awful, presented to the reader without a single form of censorship through selection. Without leaving out a single poem, everything he has written between 2008 and 2012 has been made public in this collection. Regardless of whether or not the poem was finished, is any good, makes any sense (a lot of them don't), or holds itself together grammatically. Or, this is just the publication of poems he had written anyway, and thought it would be a waste not to publish them. Imagine all the pointless hours and the vain effort if they had remained locked up in a digital dungeon somewhere.
