Honeybee is one of Trista Mateer’s first collections of poetry and so it’s a little less polished than recent collections, but still a great read. The poetry in Honeybee is about heartbreak. Something that many of us can probably relate to, and Trista Mateer brings us the raw emotions of a breakup in her poems, the processing it and trying to live in the after of an all consuming romantic relationship.
