This slim volume of poetry packs a punch. I burned through it in two days, carried along by the power of the author's emotion, her intense way of connecting with me, her reader. I especially appreciated the Biblical references, particularly to those rich, feminine stories of the Old Testament - women who continue to inspire. Tyshawn Knight is a spiritual woman, calling out to God for help, but she is also grounded. Her poems made me think. And that's high praise for poetry!
