Love is a Certain Kind of Flower



Product Description

Brooks has put together a series of lists about Love and all its variants. Brooks’ unpunctuated, serial style devoids love of its unique romance, and the small poems become more like compilations. Brooks reveals that Love is variable; as she provocatively asks on the back cover, “When is love like one thing, when is it like something else, and why?” 

For love story cynics, this is a welcome relief to the hyper-affectionate genre. Brooks’ lists conform all of love’s meanings to manufactured expressions. Yet, romantics need not despair. Part of the ingenuity is that the reader can sift through the lists to find their own. The reader searches for its name in “Love is a proper noun” or can relate to the feelings described in “Love is moody.”
