This was very good. I especially liked the poems which touched on black history/injustices. I loved the many poems which referenced or responded to other poets' work. This collection was exciting and never dull to read. The topics, the forms and the use of language were all greatly varied. This is an exciting poet who has a lot of good ideas and is a very creative writer. I want to read more of her work. ...more
