Sleeping with the Dictionary

I guess it's just me, but I didn't get most of the poems in Sleeping with the Dictionary. While there were individual lines in them that I liked because of the way they sounded, overall I wasn't able to get into them. Coo/Slur was the only poem that I specifically liked, yet I have no idea what it was talking about. I found the poems hard to read, yet I like the idea behind them and the use of language.

I am left: unsettled.

  1. I get that feeling, a sort of 'I want to like this but I just don't get it' sort of thing. I tend to encounter that allot especially with poetry. I find its a matter of accessibility, which is why i tend not to like intentionally inaccessible poems.
