Book Description:

The title of Wife is both ironic and deeply serious. There are wittily sharp poems on the gender inequalities and potential prisons of marriage, that are in dialogue with poems that celebrate the physical joys of intimacy, and poems that explore the processes of self-creation that take place in the closeness to the male other. Their context is a Virgin Islands’ past, a Black American present, and an enlarged human future.
