Review:: we carry the sky by Mckayla Robbin

“all women carry
the sky
inside of them
didn’t your mother
tell you that”

In her first collection of poetry, McKayla Robbin grows language “like wildflowers / from the wounds / that for years / would not close up.” Simultaneously vulnerable and fierce, her short-form poems engage themes of femininity, identity, violence, and healing. (via Goodreads)

This book of poems by McKayla Robbin was a breath of fresh air. I can’t think of any other way to describe it. It was short. It was sweet. It was a balm to my soul. I felt happier and more confident with every page.

I literally have nothing else to say about this collection, other than I wish I’d read it sooner. If you like Amanda Lovelace and Rupi Kaur, you’ll like McKayla Robbin.

It will surprise no one to see that this was a five star read. You can pick up your copy on Amazon or Indiebound! I highly recommend it!
