Beauty Is a Verb‘s preface seriously intimidated me, with academic terms & references to disabled poets I‘d never heard of. I‘m very glad I stuck with it! Each poet has their own introduction, and I connected to so many who showed me brand new ways of thinking and experiencing. Flipping back through, I‘m amazed at how much I learned and felt in this one collection. It‘s like the poetic version of how I felt after the 5⭐️ essay anthology About Us.
