Format: Paperback
Recognize, the last poem in the book is the best one. He seems to finally speak honestly, directly without dodging and hiding his meaning. There is a real voice, authentic in its authority, demanding your attention. recognize this. Its Kevin Powell's voice, describing the state of the world in general,& in specific, his life. The first section of the book seems scattered, but the finale brings it all together in the end.

Kevin Powell is one of the bright young poetry talents in America. I was particularly impressed with the autobiographical nature of his work, his clever use of pop culture references, and his ability to comment on social issues without being overly didactic. Powell's work, especially "for aunt cathy" and the title poem, bring to mind the stronger works of amiri baraka, allen ginsberg, and langston hughes, among others

I genuinely enjoyed Kevin Powell's first collection of poetry. He is a gifted young writer whose best work is ahead of him. I especially enjoyed the shorter pieces, and his love poems, full of sensuality and depth, are amazing
