The Madness Vase / The Nutritionist - The Trauma & Mental Health Report
Andrea Gibson is one of my favorite living, breathing poets. Her poetry, however, very often transcends these themes.

I've heard some of Gibson's slam poetry on YouTube so I was really excited to read this collection and it was absolutely amazing.
Gibson writes about a lot of topics such as war, losing people, gender identity, being queer, love a lot of love poems , and not really fitting the expectations placed upon them. As someone who is queer and trans, I really related to a lot of the poems in this collection. I never really see myself represented at all in anything let alone literature. So for me reading I've heard some of Gibson's slam poetry on YouTube so I was really excited to read this collection and it was absolutely amazing.
So for me reading about a person who has gone through the struggles I have was so refreshing and comforting, as I feel less alone in this world. I don't really want to get too personal in this review, so I'll just say I'm really glad I've read it. As a reader you really understand why certain experience had such a massive impact on Gibson, and really how universal their emotions are. As someone who is trans people often tell me that they don't know what it's like to be trans which is obviously true.
Maybe you don't know what it's like to be misgendered on a daily basis, or what it's like to transition etc. Being trans isn't some abstract idea that only trans people are allow to know what it's like. I am human , and I experience human emotions in the same way you do, maybe for different reasons but you could apply that to everyone. So what I'm trying to say is I think Gibson really expresses questioning gender identity and gender expectations in a retable and understandable to everyone regardless on your own experience with gender.
That's why this collection means so much to me. Mar 03, Saiber rated it it was amazing Shelves: , poetry , i-own-you-i-m-proud-of-that , owned , favorites , favourites.
Andrea Gibson is one of my favourite poets. Her voice is strong and her emotions are real and raw. I have read Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns. And I liked it better than the Madness Vase. Actually I just liked a lot of poems from each one. She is soo awesome. May 14, Kara rated it really liked it Shelves: poetry. For the past few years, I've seen many quotes from Andrea Gibson's poems on tumblr and other places.
I'm not a poetry guru by any means, so I don't have much to compare this to? But I did enjoy it. I really like her lyrical style. Some of her stanzas hit me like a ton of bricks. I got this from the library, but I'd love to own it someday. Dec 04, Noora rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , poetry. This is absolutely amazing. I have no words to describe how beautiful Andrea Gibson's writing is. I love her style, metaphors and passion behind her words.

This book, hands down, is now one of my all time favorites. Jun 13, Lauren Kelly rated it it was amazing Shelves: poetry-and-plays. I wanted some poetry as catharsis from the horrific events that happened in Orlando this past weekend, and Andrea Gibson was just what my heart needed. I inhaled it with the same necessity as real air. She navigates trauma and queerness and love and heartbreak while never losing her thread of activism nor her keen sense of beauty.
Nov 04, Marie S. It's hard to put into words what I think about Andrea Gibson. They move me so much and leave me speechless and thinking about what I've done with my life so far. I'd say I preferred Pansy, but it's close. Oct 19, N Yen rated it it was amazing Shelves: literature , moved-me , favorites , thought-provoking. Feb 10, Katie rated it really liked it.

While Andrea Gibson's first poetry collection is obviously superior, their second collection The Madness Vase is still superb.
They still deal with hard hitting issues such as the consequences of war on veterans, their families, and the people we fight against Sleeping , suicide Piano , and violence against the LGBT community Ashes. Gibson does not pull any punches, and they approach their subjects with raw honesty and rich emotion. Nothing in their work is contrived or forced. Maybe it's While Andrea Gibson's first poetry collection is obviously superior, their second collection The Madness Vase is still superb.
The Madness Vase: By Andrea Gibson
Maybe it's because they started out in poetry slams and spoken word, but Gibson's writing never feels stiff. They are not only honest but also funny. Not laugh out loud funny but a nudge-in-the-ribs and a sly smirk kind of funny.

More poetry should be like theirs. Perhaps the best poem in the collection is the title poem The Madness Vase. I love this poem because it gets to the core of why people write poetry. We write it so that we can breathe again, so that we can be okay. I have problems with anxiety and am not ashamed to admit I take medication for it, but sometimes writing a poem helps me more than those pills ever could. It feels like a weight is lifted off my chest. Said if I could get down thirteen turnips a day I would be grounded, rooted.
Said my head would not keep flying away to where the darkness lives. The psychic told me my heart carries too much weight.

I handed her the twenty. You will find a good man soon. The yogi told me to stretch everything but the truth. Said to focus on the out breath. Said everyone finds happiness when they care more about what they give than what they get. Nobody wants to hear you cry about the grief inside your bones. Aug 10, Caroline rated it liked it.
She was amazing. I literally cried listening to her perform.
