Book Description:“These are wide-ranging Whitmanesque poems self-aware meditations that rap and jazz their way forward, talk back, backtrack, and scratch so hard they blow out the speakers with their complicated love for a huge cast of icons, from Pam Grier to Flavor Flav, from RuPaul to Dave Chapelle.” Erika Meitner“Keats, too, would have admired the holy truth of Marcus Wicker, whose lyric wizardry astounds the ear.” D.A. PowellWinner of the 2011 National Poetry Series Prize as selected by D.A. Powell, Marcus Wicker’s Maybe the Saddest Thing is a sterling collection of contemporary American poems by an exciting new and emerging voice.
