    Like with short stories, I don't read poetry collections whole or in order, and I always cache away fragments for winter.Kimmy Walters writes the kind of poetry that characters in a Kelly Link story probably write. She is great. I also kind of want to name-check Aimee Bender here, too, but don't have a full theory of what the shared strand is. Pervasive surrealism combined with a method of playful transgression.

    Dang. Kimmy's voice is so consistent. She draws you in by the brilliant way she pulls together thoughts and images with a striking briefness that leaves you dwelling on her poems long after you've encountered them.

    Love.

    honestly I'm so sad there's not more of this book to read.

    What do I even say about this book? It does so much of want I want poetry to do -- Walters is concise and funny and heartfelt and strings together apparent non-sequiters like she's doing a magic trick, rearranging common things until they make something totally new when you step back and take it all in. There is so much insight here about the quiet, mundane, injurious experience of being a girl and I want to give this book to every teen I know.

    a sort of revelatory new collection of poems born out of personal metaphors that read like transcriptions of unfiltered honest thought. the language here dances in the structure, moving away from the point and then sometimes returning to it or often just stopping abruptly. each of these poems is a murderer in disguise, with sneaky lines that stab emotion into your gut or spine or throat or brain when you least expect it. really good stuff from a poet to keep an eye on.

    SO.GOOD.I can't even list out all the perfect lines that I loved loved loved in this, so here's one literally at random from where I just opened the book:from "Difficult Baby"years ago, my sister told me about / a horror movie she couldn't / remember the name of / so she called it the somethinging / and every part of my body / reached out to claim / that name for itself

    My new favorite thing is poetry that I discover through Twitter. First I found Patricia Lockwood and now it's Kimmy Walters. This tiny hand-bound book just came out and it's adorable. I'm having a hard time finding a foothold into the modern world of poetry, but I love everything I've seen so far. I highly recommend this book, and am looking for recommendations myself.

    i didn't think kimmy's book could possibly live up to her twitter but it really did surpass all expectations. i have saved several photos of pages of this book to my phone and i look at them all the time.

    Kimmy is from The Internet, but don't let that discourage you because everyone is from The Internet now.These poems are meant to be savored one at a time, like letting a Nilla Wafer dissolve on your tongue. I didn't savor them, I stuffed them all into my mouth at once.

    love.

    I fell immediately in love with Kimmy Walters' Uptalk. I cannot recommend it enough. I've read it again and again, pretty much every time I pick it up. And I still love it.

    Beautiful, tragic comic language. Have read this collection through and through many times. A strange delight.

    I don't know how to rate this. I didn't really get it. And it feels like something you are expected to get. It just felt so empty.
