Reflections of Soul by Queen Spades

My initial thoughts is this collection intentional written as such or is there further creative aspect not fully explored. I had a growing sense of the collection being monologue by the author, expressing her thoughts. This is fine as a concept, but some of the poetic elements to drive a poem seem brief conception. Touching on emotional subjects, a lack of full emotion and imagery by the author hinder what are good ideas. Being a short collection, demands the reader’s attention to grasped immediately and held till the finish. There are true moments of inspiration and some poems worth revisiting. Reflecting on this, I hope it forms a basis for stronger future work.
