Killing Kanoko by Hiromi Ito

This collection of poems is really good. It is written with a sharp voice. Hiromi Ito is a Japanese poet. There is memorable repetition. I want to read it some more. I am going to write a review of it. It is very bright. One of the lines is "On days I can write poetry, I masturbate." Ito focuses on that line. She also writes, "On days I can write poetry, I do not masturbate" and "On days father can write poetry, he masturbates."

Another part goes, "On days I can write poetry, I have diarrhea."

Highly recommended. Buy it at SPD.

I don't understand it, but I can tell it's good. You might think that based on these lines Hiromi Ito would be like a 16-yr-old boy, but in fact she is in her 50s.
