Reviews for Conversation with a Pine Beetle
Red Train to Grosvenor chapter 1 . 6/25/2007

I love this one. There are a few minor problems with the structure of the poem-places where the rhythm is off just enough to throw everything out of wack for that moment-but really, the messages and imagery and sheer originality of this piece is what you remember at the end, not an awkward choice of word. I love the third to last stanza. "I could kill you if I'd like," though, should probably be, "I could kill you if I like." It totally sets the mood and voice. Fantastic.

Not fluffy-ish, but very unique _ I've never read anything like this before. I'll admit, this poem made my laugh on the line "I could kill you if I’d like". Very cute.
