    This is a collection of poetry that is perfect for a cold winter's afternoon, sipping whiskey by the fire. It's introspective without the self-pity. It's a reflection of life's mistakes without being maudlin. It's every day failures without the banality. It's acknowledging that relationships can fall apart without being the fault on any one party. Mount draws comparisons between himself and Bukowski, and while the themes are similar, Mount's poetry is more polished and less raw. More focused inward than with the outward hate. It is an acknowledgment that life often doesn't go as planned, and yeah, we have to own those mistakes. My favorite poem of the lot is "Smokebreaks," an ode to the quiet moments between crises, and how a mundane act can help ground you amidst the extraordinary. It also highlights that sometimes you cannot communicate completely with others, even when you desperately need to. Needless to say, I highly recommend picking up this collection.
