I received a digital copy of Kayt Christensen’s Inevitable Ignition through The Poetry Question for review purposes. As always, this review reflects only my honest thoughts on the book.

Fuel made from burnt words, and frayed feelings. Spark lit in a cold front-the onslaught of emotion. Combustion was imminent; this Inevitable Ignition. Inevitable Ignition is a poetry collection told in three parts. Fuel-the pain inflicted on us and that which we inflict on each other. Spark-recognizing the error in our ways, and seeing the need to be better in order to survive. Combustion-retaliating against the quietness we’ve been taught in order to find peace within ourselves and our relationships. This collection is both deeply personal, and widely universal, and it asks you in every line to step into the poetry itself.
