I found the poem interesting and well written, but somehow I feel as if the images were distracting and they'd take me out of the story the poem was trying to tell. I do appreciate the poem gets its own page at the end, allowing me to read it all without breaking it apart, and that gave me a better feel. All in all, the poem was wonderful and I rather enjoyed it.
"Gingerbread Girl" is a poetic story about a cookie's struggle with the fate of either be eaten or put aside for display. The poem, written in Orphic sonnets, focusses on gender, sexuality and Lacan's gaze. Each poetic line is illustrated with new original artwork. The artwork primarily draws influence from Vincient Van Gogh and post-impressionism.
