6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J. Nystrom on November 3, 2008
Format: Paperback
When Sonia Sanchez talks, people tend to listen. I've seen it in person while taking a class with her at Naropa, and I feel it jumping off the page. She simply embodies charisma and power, personally and in her writing.

Her formats range from near-short-story prose-poem pieces to haiku-like meditations that keep your hand from turning the page as you chew on her powerful images of hobos on trains, neighbors upstairs, and people playing handball against the side of a filling station.

She inserts chants and machinegunfire descriptions that make expert use of open and projective verse, leaving the reader with a sense that poetry can, and will, take many forms to get one's point across effectively. Read this collection and walk away with a better understanding of how Sonia relates to the world.
