Rise of the Trust Fall by Mindy Nettifee // published by Write Bloody
The poems in Mindy Nettifee’s second book, Rise of the Trust Fall, possess a magic that can only come from a seasoned writer willing to share more on the page than she’s comfortable with. Whether exploring the strange alchemy of healing, the perils of self-actualization, or the contemporary experience of womanhood, the poems in this daring collection are gorgeous and vibrant, bitingly funny, and unflinchingly honest. Rise of the Trust Fall challenges more than our understanding of ourselves. It calls us to connect to our humanity, to celebrate its flaws, and then to demand more of it, in every well crafted line.
