A powerful collection shaping raw emotions into fierce and jagged poetry which deals with being both gay and black in the USA. Though there is much about HIV/AIDS, prejudice and police brutality here there is also a lot of love and tenderness.
think: once, a white girl
was kidnapped & that's the Trojan War.
later, up the block, Troy got shot
& that was Tuesday, are we not worthy
of a city of ash? of 1,000 ships
launched because we are missed
i demand a war to bring the dead child back
i at least demand a song. a head.
