Well...I didn't love it. It wasn't nearly as clever as it tried to be. Pretty much the only poem I really liked was "Talk." It starts like this:

Talk

like a nigger now, my white friend,M, said
after my M.L.K. and Ronald Reagan impersonations,
the two of us alond and shirtless in the locker room,


It is a long poem so I'm not going to copy all of it here, but it is a good one. The only one that wowed me.
