Overview

From the author of We Struggle Not Against Flesh & Blood comes this new collection of poems, Song of the Mantis. The poetry in this collection is playful in nature yet intensely reflective in some verses but at all times wildly fun and absolutely uplifting. Through the first chapter, Powell provides insight into the eclectic manner in which his thoughts take flight. He infuses his affinity for hip hop music throughout this work, particularly when displaying his keen interest in both the American political system and hip hop culture itself. In the second chapter, Powell speaks to the complexities of relationships between the sexes. This whimsical march through the subtleties existing at the nexus of love and sex is sure to delight a diverse group of readers (See disclaimer below). Powell culminates this volume by sharing some deeply personal reflections on faith. Song of the Mantis will entertain and inspire!
