The Only Worlds We Know by Michael Lee is a small book of poems. The poems talk about pain, loss, grief, addiction and people we love. I felt that the poems are very intense. There were a little loud and on the darker side but certain lines in the poems make you pause and re-read to understand the depth. There is a honesty in thee author’s words that exume an out of the world philosophy.
The pain in the poems hits the reader hard. It’s short but very strong. This book took me by surprise. Definitely a remarkable debut by the author Michael Lee!
