I have to be honest, because I was brought up being taught that poetry must at all times be lyrical regardless of its form or lack of, this does, to me, read a little like chopped up prose. I'm not sure how we draw the distinction anymore but verse must display figurative language, surely. I read this more like an interesting story, which I enjoyed despite that one gripe.
