“all women carry
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.
