Product description


Morgan Parker''s bombastic second book profoundly expresses a black millennial consciousness with anger and appetite

I can and have read Morgan Parker''''s poems over and over . . . She writes history and pleasure and kitsch and abstraction, then vanishes like a god in about 13 inches.--Eileen Myles

Parker's poetry is a sledgehammer covered in silk

Employing fierce language and eschewing fear of unflattering light

[A] tremendous new collection.--The Paris Review

[Parker''''s] second collection of poetry is a series of raw, unflinching examinations of race and womanhood.--Girlboss, "Five New Books That Will Make You a Better Feminist"

[Morgan Parker's] poems are delightful in their playful ability to rake through our contemporary moment in search of all manner of riches, just as they are devastating in their ability to remind us of what we look like when nobody''''s watching, and of what the many things we don''''t--or can''''t--say add up to.--Tracy K. Smith

"Art hurts," wrote poet Gwendolyn Brooks. "Art urges voyages." Morgan Parker's poems hurt deeply and voyage widely. They do not let you sit comfortably and idly and safe, but take you on an adventure like no other. Like the "Fantastic Voyage" promised by R&B legends Lakeside, Parker's work is "live, live, all the way live." Get on board this trip; it is like no other.--D.A. Powell

For the person who doesn't need their poetry to be "pretty." For the person who needs their poetry to be powerful in its beauty, in its ability to eviscerate them, in its willingness to go places they never knew existed before. For the person who drinks words like others drink water.--NYLON, Best Books of the Year

Parker's poems brings heat to the art of Mickalene Thomas, the racial politics of Barack Obama's presidency, the body politics of Beyoncé and the danger of moving through America in a black body.--TIME Magazine, Best Paperbacks of 2017

Book Description
