The Trees The Trees


HTML Giant’s reviewing The Trees The Trees, which is a collection of poems by Heather Christle with twice the title you think it would have, and also not a Terrence Malick movie.

The review in it of itself, is impressive because it describes the poems in terms that are approachable and humorously presumptuous, for example: “Reading The Trees The Trees is akin to the logical disturbance one feels while watching YouTube videos of the late Macho Man” and “The poems look like prose blocks with holes punched in them. If you unfocus your eyes while you read it looks like pieces are missing. Like a puzzle from the thrift store.” Who’s Macho Man? You can find out about that and the poetry collection all in one blog post!
