"Instagram star Rupi Kaur has been savaged by critics in the past – but even fans will be disappointed by her new offering"

Kaur was mocked for metaphors such as “i was music/ but you had your ears cut off”, but they were hers. I miss them. People who have been bullied sometimes respond by trying to avoid drawing attention to themselves. It’s the antithesis of Kaur’s self-empowered ethos, but it’s what these poems are doing; so many are one-line statements in featureless, businesslike language, all distinguishing marks filed off.
