Wow The long poems in this collection are both formally innovative and deeply moving “Witness” attests to the murder and dismemberment of Rashawn Brazell in a way that somehow refrains from making a spectacle of his death and instead evokes deep empathy particularly for Rashawn’s mother “He Loved Him Madly” an elegy for the poet’s father is stark in its depiction of addiction and wild with loss and longingbr br I am still lingering on “Inheritance Anthem” which really has to be seen on the page The outer ring of the poem evolves in each section from an almost abstract blur to words that when read closely show the typical Miranda warning br br I am also still sitting with “DoRag” with its eroticism its threat of violence “Some men have killed their lovers because they loved them so much in secret that the secret kept coming out wife gouging her husband with suspicion churches sneering when an usher enters Never mind that The sickle moon turns the sky into a man’s mouth slapped sideways to keep him from spilling what no one would understand you call me god when it gets good though I do not exist to you outside this room Be yourself or no one else here Your dorag is camouflagepatterned and stuffed into my mouth”br

Thief in the InteriorThis gorgeous debut is a 'debut' in chronology only Need is everywhere in the unforgiving images in lines so delicate they seem to break apart in the hands and in the reader who will enter these poems and never want to leave Adrian MatejkaPhillip B Williams investigates the dangers of desire balancing narratives of addiction murders and hate crimes with passionate uncompromising depth Formal poems entrenched in urban landscapes crack open dialogues of racism and homophobia rampant in our culture Multitudinous voices explore one's ability to harm an. I loved the idea behind the poems all the politics and ueer themes But the implementation left me cold at times There were certain sections that seemed to sing but many just didn't appeal to my tastes Still a gripping collection though
