Like the Singing Coming off the Drums: Love Poemsby Sonia Sanchez
Like the Singing Coming off the Drums is a dazzling exploration of the intimate and public landscapes of passion from one of our master poets. In haiku, tanka, and sensual blues, Sonia Sanchez writes of the many forms love takes: burning, dreamy, disappointed, vulnerable. With words that revel and reveal, she shares love's painful beauty.

There is a particular untitled poem in this collection that will make you gasp, grin, and feel real real good!
Sanchez gets into the deepest emotions. This is a true work of art especially the tribute to Tupac Shakur and his mom. Very good, true to life writing. Can't keep my head out of the book.
