Pineapples In The Pool
Melissa J. Davies
Pineapples in the Pool is a collection of poems about falling in love and having your heart broken; they’re about moving around and feeling a little bit lost; growing older and having no idea what life is about but having a go anyway. They’re also about how handsome Dev Patel is and how great it is to eat crisps in your underwear and old lady vaginas. So a mixed bag really. If you like your poetry lighthearted and hopeful with a splattering of celebrity adoration then Pineapples in the Pool is for you. The author’s own mother once described the poems as “actually quite good”, and with praise as good as that, how can you resist?
