Read full description of the books:



I stumbled onto Morgan Parker a few weeks ago and immediately ordered all of her books to-date. These are very modern, Millennial poems, and her perspective as a woman of color infuses all of these pieces with a strong voice. She talks about relatively mundane subjects, but each hones an edge once it's added to the others and considered in the larger context of social justice and issues facing modern American society today. The prose didn't strike me with the beauty of a writer like Tracy K. Smith; it's much more raw and visceral. This book really shifted my perspective of what "makes" poems, and I loved the continuity throughout the book (such as the series of observations of Miss Black America, for example). I'm very curious to read Parker's future work, and I hope she keeps sharing with us all!
