Love or Anti-Love BookRix Poetry Contest Winners Announced
The first place prize of $300 goes to Evercaptivating for the poetry book, The Push and Pull of You. This book was created “for the repentant hearts of husbands” according to the book description. BookRix independent judge, Harry Sims, wrote:
The voice in this poem is raw, and the poetic structure is refreshingly unrefined. When the reader gets to the phrase “You refused to fight for me,” it becomes clear that this poem is more of a howl than a lament.
This poem creates the mythological element in a poem about forbidden love….[It] is one that a reader can read over and over again capturing something new each time.
