Covet by Lynnell Edwards is reviewed by Book Punch in 200 words or less.
“Covet is a verb. It’s active. Here, in these poems, it’s also a constant choice. And then, you realize that most emotions—most reactions—are choices. Choose to be angry, or don’t. Choose to be content, or don’t. All of these decisions—all of this action—surrounds us, circling, like wild animals. But sometimes, like love or hunger, it seems like the decision is out of our hands. We covet even when we don’t want to…That’s how we hang onto what we don’t want to lose.”
