The Day Is Ready for You is a prose and poetry collection about life, heartbreak and breathing freely.

I liked The Day Is Ready for You because some of the poems and prose were really beautiful. It’s not my favourite poetry and prose collection because I couldn’t connect to all the poems. I really liked that there were romantic poems and feminist poems, those were definitely the best poems in this collection.


the garden is all stars tonight
and each one is named
after a woman who walked away.

i hope i learn from them.

My favourite poems:
  • never
  • obvious
  • unwanted
  • nerves
  • insistent
  • learn
  • pressure
  • morning
  • above all
  • told you
  • keeping
  • but it is worth it
