Book of Levitations by Jenny Sadre-Orafai and Anne Champion

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Solid 4 stars!

Book of Levitations is a short, thought provoking poetry book. I’m not a huge sticky tab person, but I marked quite a few poems that I would what to go back to later on. Some poems were deep, some lighthearted, and the two authors made some of their poems deep AND lighthearted.

My favorite poem was title “Spell for the Hive.” It had an interesting twist on feminism. Not only can female be equal, but they can be the queen, and the worker bees follow her blindly even if it means killing themselves. This poem will stay with me for a long time as will others. It makes me think. After all, what are we without the worker bees?

Overall, I truly enjoyed these verses. These are the kind of poems that inspire me to keep reading poetry and even to write some!
