“In Laura Theobald’s debut full-length, What My Hair Says About You, the author gives up on communication and instead decides to tell the reader how she really feels. Theobald’s casual charm, boredom and occasional bereftness take you hand-in-hand, poem by poem, among the flowers and dead woods and bedroom scenes and emotional weather. Consider this poem, ‘Sleep,’ in its entirety: “sleep until I forget you/ until orange is blue.” Come for the poetry, stay for the complications and contradictions, stay for the feels. Transfer money from your savings account and buy this book now.”
