✨Review✨ Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass ~ Lana Del Rey I’m a fan of Lana, just putting that out there before I start gushing about this poetry collection. I don’t think there was going to be a universe where I didn’t like this. Poetry is very subjective and I’m not sure reviewing it is useful. But if you’re a fan of Lana’s music then I think you should give it a go. A sort of love letter to LA, it made me miss being there, and I didn’t even like it when I was. The photos of ordinary things/places that were interspersed between the words were a wonderful touch. The first two thirds I would say are full length poems and then the last few pages are one sentence prose. I also loved how you could see her writing on the pages and some of the drafting. It felt a bit more personalised. My favourite single line being “The universe exists because we are aware of it”
