Review of Play Yr Kardz Right by Beach Sloth

Terrific review of my book Play Yr Kardz Right. Thank you so much Beach Sloth!!

Over the course of the work, the use of a childlike wonder allows the poetry to expose deeper held truths within the world. Lust, love, hope, fear, these roll on through in ways that feel beyond the usual. Highly honest, the book tells no lies, no lies at all. A direct path to the reader comes into play, letting the work feel as natural as the way people speak to one another.

“From America to beyond, the dialogue and interactions play a pivotal role in shaping a life. Little observations are stretched out to humorous effect. Much of the book lets this playfulness roam free. During moments the book almost seems to challenge the reader to sing it, rather than just read it.”
