    Read this on a flight in one sitting. Really good first chapbook from a poet to watch out for. The lines and subject matter are devastating and intense. The only thing for me keeping it from 5 stars was a tendency of the author to mix fantastic lines poetry with the occasional line that read more like part of an essay. Can't wait for the next book.

    CAConrad wrote “You are an asshole if you read this book and are not destroyed and renewed and see through the poet Loma a way to redemption for us all.”I guess I'm an asshole then.The flute professor at my college believed that undergraduates shouldn't be allowed to perform Mozart. He was an asshole too. To his credit, he had to endure hundreds of miserable auditions and jury evaluations throughout his career.People under 30 shouldn't be allowed to write poetry. Maybe that's too strong a st [...]

    It's passionate and raw with some striking imagery sprinkled throughout. It's urgent and painful. It feels young and unapologetically (odd to say bc loma is constantly apologizing in this chapbook, in different ways) unpolished. I was personally struck far more by the introduction and context than the work itself. The ache to write a universal sadness is the most intriguing aspect of this chapbook, and it helps to clarify why the images and plot - both in single poems and arching as a whole - ar [...]

    the poem loma read from their phone was so goodbut these poems they said they hated,I liked them but I would understand whyif I were loma - red lights criminal queer -pocket lana del rey summertimesad girl poemsI googled more poems by lomaand got so excited =/= happiness?more like just thesevibrations

    Notable for containing some of the worst lines of poetry I've ever read:If our love, is a trash bagPlease, don’t let it tear.This is what the multi-million dollar MFA industry produces. The random, illiterately placed comma is a thing of awe. I do like the book's cover though.

    Incredible work. Especially captivated by the metacognition about the relationship of identity to poem-making, but also so, so gutted by the incredible lyricism and figuration of this chapbook. Very excited to read more Loma.

    Soto's poems land like a punch and leave the reader breathless. A must read for fan's of Saeed Jones or Richard Siken.

    I was first aware of Soto through their poem on the Orlando tragedy, which is the only poem I've read about the recent terror attacks that seemed to capture, to any degree, what had happened. It was an emotional and personal response to the tragedy, and the style of writing felt new and intriguing.I then read some of the poems featured in this collection online, and I had the same response. Soto faces trauma head on, and their responses are controlled but emotional. The poems aren't not easy rea [...]

    This is one angry man. Teen love is made wrong by family, and one of them kills self. In the end, there is no resolution to the anger; there is only unhappiness. Forward speaks of UDP Undocumented Poets as never getting a fair shake in the publishing arena or by the reviews. Maybe this is because the works aren’t very good. It is sort of supportive-Trump argument--If only the reviewers were minorities, we would get a fair shake.

    This book takes you out of yourself and places you in a scene that is already happening. When opening the book you are engulfed in emotions you may have not known existed or have felt before but in the end your heart grieved. In a short span of pages you hurt, you love, you hurt again, and you heal.

    [There is so much here]Loma has built a home [in these poems].Loma makes us laugh [that everything is burning and we had not noticed] and we feel [bad] [but not enough].A wonderful [wonderful, wonderful, wonderful] debut.So much heartbreak [so little time]
