The first, possibly, or the only poetry anthology I read all the way through. Many recurrent sentiments of being against white, blonde, blue eyed people, lots of venom and sorrow. Too bad none of this will be on the GRE literature test coming up in a month for me. Perhaps tides will change.

I think this is the most amazing book I ever read in my entire life. I'm learning more about poetry than I expected because I'm trying to become a poet when I grow up! I want people to experience how this book can connect to you faster than you can say, "OMG, this book is awesome"
