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.
