"This book is made up of poems written for strangers. Every week, over the course of two years, I asked a stranger for a word to use in a poem. I had only two rules: The person had to be an actual stranger. The word had to appear in the poem. Aside from that, the poem could be about anything. And so each poem became about many things: the word itself, the "This book is made up of poems written for strangers.

    Poetry for Strangers was a beautiful, breath-taking set of poems! I loved this little book! It was by far the cutest set of poems I have ever read. Each poem is based on a single word, and tells a wonderful story. All of the stories within the poems are different, but they are flawless and smooth. I couldn't ask for a better set of poems. It was by far a quick read, since there are only about 50 poems in this set. But, that doesn't mean there is a lack of quality since there is a lack in quantity.
