What People are Saying About This

June Jordan
“Following the laughter and the compassionate pith of a dauntless imagination, these poems beeline or zig-zag always to the jugular, the dramatic and unarguable revelation of the heart.”
Yusef Komunyakaa
“There’s a knife-edge clarity under the voice, intricate rhythm patterns threaded through the lines, an improvisational feeling that doesn’t pull against the poetry. There isn’t any linguistic sleight of hand happening in his poetry; the emotion and motion feel grounded to the earth.”
