There is a visceral, unflinching eye at work in Fatbergs, that begins with the arresting title and continues throughout this collection, which ranges far as it examines human relationships in the complex societies and landscapes they inhabit.  Mbarushimana’s writes, ‘I choose to see you,’ and her lens doesn’t look away from what a body is in its life span, shapes and functions. Her words circle around the bone, skin and flesh, and this approach anchors the poems concerns back in the body to create a refreshingly corporeal narrative. The collection seeks to value the material body that houses a person, and the earth that houses that body.

A poet that reads people and turns them into poems. This is a beautiful suite of poems from a compelling and talented writer.
