Alexandria

by Jasmine V. Bailey
 

In Alexandria, Jasmine V. Bailey has written a string of love poems, islands in an archipelago that emerges with each poem’s brief story. In a voice at times detached and wistful and sometimes ringing with ardor, these poems keenly remember sexual desire and male beauty, weaving them into observations that are quietly political or fiercely existential.

What People are Saying About This

Gregory Orr
“Jasmine Bailey’s extraordinary Alexandria revels in a world of lucid desire where poem after poem fuses loss and celebration, unfolding in lines that savor the sensuous, seize the heart.”
