A Powerful New Review of the New "Fuck Cancer Poems" by Michael Grover (thank you to Matthew J Hall)!

"From empathy comes understanding. From understanding comes purpose. Above all else, Fuck Cancer Poems is a book of purpose. Grover is most certainly saying, fuck you, to the cancerous cells he hosts. Moreover, though, his resounding, fuck you!, is aimed at a wider pain; a common pain that the populace plays host to. The pain of loss. The discomfort of playing against the odds. The sorrow of getting older and watching friends die. The frustration of baring witness to money-hungry leaders rising from the ranks of schizophrenic government. These poems are a thoughtful response and a gut-deep reaction. They are the fuck destruction poems. They are fuck apathy poems. Fuck suffering quietly poems. Fuck loneliness poems. Fuck banal poetry poems. These are the resolute, empathetic, defiant, purposeful words of a man who has looked death in the eye; these are, Michael Grover’s, fuck cancer poems."
