really liked it

A deeply moving and disturbing collection of poems from the perspective of post-2016 election. These poems examine race, America, manhood and the political climate after Trump’s inauguration.

I'm not gonna pretend that I *got* all the references. I'm not well-versed in poetry and find the genre very abstract. This was a collection that challenged me in a way that encouraged me to slow down and reflect. This was bleak at times but poignant and a wonderful collection with plenty of reread value.
