Book Review. I Left the Room Burning by Beth O’Brien.

soap bubbles dripped from the handle

and he said: you could at least use one I haven’t just washed

she said: you could at least learn to dry up

if you wanted to write a story through poetry, with each poem loosely linking to the other, I Left the Room Burning is how you would achieve it. I Left the Room Burning is so rich with excellent metaphors, and menace. Using the themes of darkness, nature, stories told to a child, trap doors and keys, knives, windchimes, books and flames, circus and flight. I Left the Room Burning was so compelling to read.
