Contemporary poetry is hit and miss – I either love it or hate it, and I particularly hate it when it’s unoriginal. Luckily, Magnesium feels both original and contemporary, with some excellent wordplay and plenty of little lines that linger and make you start to think more than you thought about things before. I didn’t love all of it, but I loved a lot of it – and I’d definitely read more.
