    Book Description:
    Poetry. African American Studies. Blending biblical characters into a deeply personal history, WHAT WE ASK OF FLESH tells of women through time, their spirits borne through broken flesh, through wombs and memories. The body becomes instrument as words explore the mystical connection between what was and is.

    "WHAT WE ASK OF FLESH, like the flesh itself, is full of honey and fire. It’s impossible not to feel called by these poems, summoned by their rich sound and vatic voice. Remica Bingham reckons with the big stuff: the complexities of womanhood, the problem of suffering, family, and childhood’s darker aspects. Every poem is uttered with fervor and a timeless sense of gravity and rapture."—Amy Gerstler
