She Wears Pain Like Diamonds by Alfa

This poetry book is divided into 3 sections: Mantle, Eruption, and Brilliance, as a reference to the formation and luster of diamonds (which is already such a unique way to start out the book)! Alfa is a fierce feminist writer, and this collection proves it. She Wears Pain Like Diamonds is about strength and resilience, and is a great female-empowerment poetry book to read this month!

Dirty Pretty Things by Michael Faudet

While this book is not new to 2021, this is one of those poetry books I find myself constantly rereading! This is author Michael Faudet’s first poetry book exploring romantic and sexual relationships through short stories, poems, and quotes and his imagery is simply outstanding! If you only have time for one poetry book this month, this is it!
