Come-Hither Honeycomb

Availability: Ready to download

In Come-Hither Honeycomb, Erin Belieu turns her signature wit and intellectual rigor inward for an unguarded exploration of human vulnerability. The poems meditate on the impact of large and small traumas: the lasting thumbprint of abuse, the collective specter of disease, the achingly sweet humility of parenting. The bodies in these poems are trapped, held hostage, bleedi In Come-Hither Honeycomb, Erin Belieu turns her signature wit and intellectual rigor inward for an unguarded exploration of human vulnerability. The poems meditate on the impact of large and small traumas: the lasting thumbprint of abuse, the collective specter of disease, the achingly sweet humility of parenting. The bodies in these poems are trapped, held hostage, bleeding. And yet there is agency--structural dynamism, texture, the color green--while a woman climbs a metal ladder to the diving board, a girl climbs high into the branches. The speaker grapples with a lifelong pattern of brutality, then painfully breaks free.

    I definitely liked it. I'd give it 3.5 if that was an option. It was lovely and brief, which is more and more uncommon in poetry worlds. I felt like, and this might be my fault and not the book's fault, that it all just glossed over me or I glossed over it. Will try to read again and see if I can better pin down my feelings on this latest Belieu venture. I definitely liked it. I'd give it 3.5 if that was an option.

    Smart and pithy, accessible and relatable. I found these poems held a unique tension in me, that I entered them and wanted to stay there and hover, yet also yearned to be released from the piercing tiny hole of vulnerability this author creates. It's the kind of poetry that gives poetry a good name. Smart and pithy, accessible and relatable.

    Erin Belieu’s poetry is crisp (not sure if this is the word I’m looking for—) and witty. What I particularly liked about her style is the way she plays with structure and concepts in each poem, making for a dynamic read. I can recognize Belieu’s talent, but I don’t think I was the right audience.

    A small yet creative collection of reflections. Some wonderful quips in here. Shows she is comfortable in many rhythms.
