If My Body Could Speak

Blythe Baird deftly and uniquely charts a course through various modes of womanhood and women's bodies. Through love, loss, and the struggles of disordered eating, If My Body Could Speak uses sharp narratives and visceral imagery to get to the heart of a many-layered existence, speaking to many generations at once.

She writes about this in such an effective way. I really feel for her. It's so relatable.when I find a boy's hair in the rough draftsof her poems, I pretend not to.When I ask her what she loved about him,she says, I know this is bad, buthe was so terrible to me, I never ran out of things to write about.There's so, so much good here about her experience as a queer woman. A ton about her relationship with her mom (and her mom's difficulty accepting that she's a lesbian) that's incredibly emotional.She glosses her lips with gasoline,kisses the mouths of matchstick menthen complains everyone she lovesis on fire.There's a lot about abuse as well, some of it very graphic. I only mention this because I believe a survivor has a right to control the dialogue surrounding their abuse/assault, but it can be difficult to read. *Thanks so much to NetGalley and the publisher for access to this collection in exchange for an honest review.*

    I loved this book of poetry, it really spoke to me, as a woman, as someone struggling with weight alll my life and now trying to accept who I am and learn to be body positive. These poems are raw and hit hard. So powerful. I loved them, even when hard to read, they were wonderful.Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest review

If this is purely fiction, I congratulate the author in achieving this feat and bringing the feelings of victims of such incidents quite amazingly.Quite an apt account if really our body could speak against the constant body shaming we go through.Thanks to NetGalley for a digital copy of this book.

    DISCLAIMER: FREE COPY FROM NETGALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEWThis is not just a book of poetry. It's a critique of society, of women's place in that society, of eating disorders, of sexuality, of sexual violence that HAPPENS to be in the form of poetry.It reminds me of some of Carol Ann Duffy's work in places; it has that kind of feel to it, what with the line breaks and patterns across the page. It also reminds me of Amanda Lovelace's poetry; it's got the same kind of content.Thing is, DISCLAIMER: FREE COPY FROM NETGALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEWThis is not just a book of poetry. It's a critique of society, of women's place in that society, of eating disorders, of sexuality, of sexual violence that HAPPENS to be in the form of poetry.It reminds me of some of Carol Ann Duffy's work in places; it has that kind of feel to it, what with the line breaks and patterns across the page. It also reminds me of Amanda Lovelace's poetry; it's got the same kind of content.Thing is, this book is far more raw than either of those. At first it felt a little lacking for me, without the flair or aesthetic I'm used to. It was certainly relatable, but it felt a little empty for me. However, as I read on, I found myself enjoying the bluntness of it - this is someone who is fed up with the way the world is and really couldn't care less about wrapping everything up in fancy metaphors and imagery (though there is a little bit of that).I particularly like 'Everything is Fluid'; it's a short poem regarding sexuality, and it resonated with me to the point that I just highlighted the entire thing on my kindle. It's one of those short little poems that I'd stick up on my pin-board to remind myself that I'm not 100% alone in this kind of thing. 'Horoscopes for Self-Doubt' was another favourite, even if my eyes did skip straight to my star sign - that one definitely put a smile on my face, because the little piece of advice fitted exactly with what I've struggled with recently.If you like feminist poetry, I'd suggest giving this book a go - it covers such a broad spectrum of subjects, chances are, you'll find something you relate to.

    I am so mixed on this review. There were so many poems I absolutely loved that were insightful and validating. It was very clear to me that Blythe Baird is still suffering and using poetry as an outlet for her pain. I totally applaud using poetry as a tool to recover, its a healthy outlet, and it offers us something beautiful and haunting to read. By the end however, it was also clear that she is just sitting in her pain, to the point where many of the poems almost romanticized mental illness. A I am so mixed on this review.

By the end however, it was also clear that she is just sitting in her pain, to the point where many of the poems almost romanticized mental illness. As an assault survivor, this was a bit triggering for me to get through, but many parts felt like she was speaking from inside of my body (like the title says). There is a necessary discomfort that is expected when reading about these heavy topics, but I found some of the poems to be pushing that boundary in the wrong direction (Vindictive maybe, but I still cant find the right word to describe it). I have so many thoughts about it that I need to sift through, but i will hold my peace until I get the chance to read it a second time though. This collection is easily made worth the purchase through the poems "Girl Code 101" "Pocket-Sized Feminism" "Skirt Steak Girls" and "I Lose My Voice During Sex"I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I can admit openly that that poem is a big part of why I chose to start my recovery, as opposed to falling deeper and deeper into my illness.Baird's writing cuts deep, but reads like folded note from an old friend. I found myself crying at points and laughing at others. By the end, I was sad it was over, but also proud that I was able to push myself to read something that hurt so much. Books like this are needed, and important. They need to be shared with the quiet girl at the back of the bus, with your older sister, with your mom, with your best friend from childhood.Remember Baird's words - remember the issues that vagina-holders in the world face - remember to check on your strong friends and your not-so-strong ones.But most of all, remember to hold your heart in your own hands. Feel its beating, and heal.Star Count: ☆☆☆☆☆ (5/5)

She delves into topics many of us - regardless of gender - are scared to speak about out loud: trauma, mental illness, and the type of feminism that isn't always considered 'cool' by the bros. Baird recounts the struggles of developing and overcoming a mindset consumed by disordered eating with grim yet admirable clarity. She speaks truth to the ways in which this society has been conditioned to praise weight loss, regardless of how it happens or what damage it causes. She weaves in her personal experiences with sexual assault, grappling with her sexual orientation, and relationships with friends, partners, and family. If My Body Could Speak is a product of turning art into what you need it to be. Crafting your stories, even those that haunt you, into something you can love and hope others can benefit from as well.

The discussion on body issues and eating disorders was so raw and real, and the open “When the Fat Girl Gets Skinny” was absolutely phenomenal and hit really hard. Another poem that hit me especially hard was “Pocket-Sized Feminism” which discusses privilege and feminism: “This house is for wallpaper / women. What good is wallpaper that speaks?”For such a short book, there were quite a few poems that just faded to the background for me, but overall, Baird’s images were interesting and her viewpoint intriguing and, at some points unfortunately, relatable.

It deals with the body, trauma, and feminism in a raw way. I’ve connected with the poems, felt their words affect. I could still relate on various levels. This collection brings together so many important themes in a woman’s life. Baird goes straight to the core of the problem. She doesn’t use metaphors and imagery to cover up trauma. She takes it head on. Her words are brutal, but honest. This is an important poetry collection for our day and age. It’s an honest look at what it’s like to be a woman, to have a period, suffer from an eating disorder, sexual violence, and one’s sexuality. Each poem reads like a look into a subconscious which is trying to make sense of what is going on. Themes were handled with care and honesty. It was clear that the author was expressing herself without holding back. However, this collection will not be for everyone. Its’s trigger warnings include rape, abuse, mental illness & eating disorders. The poems are vivid and it’s clear that the author is transparent about what she went through. I recommend this poetry collection to anyone who needs some uplifting and want to feel less alone after a traumatic event. And it’s the perfect gift for the feminist in your life! I loved this collection and can see a lot of people relating to the poems.* Thank you NetGalley for providing me with this arc in exchange for an honest review.

    I received and ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Unfortunately this book was not one of my favorites. It addresses eating disorders and from the description I really thought I would be into it, however from just a few pages in I knew that was not going to be the case. I found the format hard to follow and the characters flat. I could not relate to anyone here nor did I feel as though there was enough time to relate to them as this is such a short story.
