You can look at this annotated poetry collection as meta-fiction that aims to present a writer’s struggles, experiments, and successes with poetry. It is the good, the bad, and the incredibly awful, presented to the reader without a single form of censorship. All of the poems have been left in their raw, natural form. Every poem the author wrote between 2008 and 2012 has been published in this book, regardless of whether or not it was finished, or holds itself together grammatically.
All though, maybe it is just that the author thought it would be a waste to not publish them. Imagine all the pointless hours and the vain effort if they had stayed buried in a random Dropbox folder somewhere. How rude that would have been.
