Poetry. African & African American Studies. This perfect-bound chapbook showcases Safiya Sinclair’s immense talents across a wide variety of genres, including poetry, memoir, and literary essay. Eddie Baugh writes, "Her mythopoeic imagination thrives on startling metaphors and combinations of images. Eschewing the naturalistic and consolatory, the poetry is alive in disturbing implosions of consciousness, drawn to cataclysm and apocalypse, whether in personal or communal histories."
