I bought a book after Cuileann gave it a review on goodreads.com with one word. "Wow." I couldn't pass up a book that she described with one word, now could I?
Book: The Book Of Nightmares by Galway Kinnell
I think my favorite lines (book of poetry) are...
Chapter 3 poem 7
"but when the crone
held up my crystal skull to the moon
you will feel all your bones break
over the holy waters you will never drink"
Chapter 4 poem 2
"......O God, I thought. My breath came short, my heart opened. O God I thought, now I have a demon lover."
Chapter 6 Poem 4
(My personal Favorite Line in the whole book)
"....That there shall be one acre in the world where the kissing flower may bloom, which kisses you so long your bones explode under its lips."
