Something Sinister

Something Sinister
Charara, Hayan, 1972-

These poems grapple with conflicts arising from a world in which the personal, political, cultural, and aesthetic are deeply entangled and often troubling. Charara does not shy away from the tensions, unease, doubts, regrets, or bafflement of this world; and his wide-ranging focus brings together people from all walks of life--a father obsessed with the boxer Muhammad Ali; a girl missing since the 1970s; a mother and daughter trapped in a submerged vehicle; and a suicide bomber, his witnesses, and victims.

Silencer

Silencer
Wicker, Marcus

"Welcome to Marcus Wicker's Midwest, where the muzzle is always on and where silence and daily microaggressions can chafe away at the faith of a young man grieved by images of gun violence and police brutality in twenty-first-century America. Precisely contradictory, bittersweet, witty, and heartbreaking, Silencer is where the political and the personal collide. Driven by the sounds of hip-hop and reimagined forms and structures, Wicker's explosive second bookis composed of poems at war with themselves, verses in which the poet questions his own faith in God, in hope, in the American Dream, and in himself. Pushing our ideas of traditions and expectations, these poems and queries work in concert towards creating a new dialectic"--Provided by publisher.

Whiskey Words & A Shovel: I

Whiskey Words & A Shovel: I
Sin, R. H.

Whiskey, Words, and a Shovel, Vol. 1, is about reclaiming your power on the path to a healthy relationship. It is a testament to choosing to love yourself, even if it means heartbreak. Originally released in 2015, this re-rerelease packs the same punch as the first version, but makes an even greater connection with the soul of the reader. Each piece has been re-seen and revamped to reflect the author's continuing journey with his partner, Samantha King, without whom this book would not exist. Samantha is the muse, the "she" the writer speaks of; she is every woman who has felt like she wasn't good enough, and every woman who struggles to find love.

Thousands: Poems
Darst, Lightsey

"Praise for Lightsey Darst: "This is a vital poetry of the Deep South ripe with bones, blood and bogs, Snow Whites, Gretels and debutantes all stirred into a harrowing stew of lust, dusk and summer." -New York Times "A terrific collection. Full of horror, bleak humor, and suspense, these poems read like mini-thrillers, daring you to put the book down." - Entertainment Weekly Desire & the page felt it. I told myself, something is happening. You could make weather happen then. Dear not only in dream life, dear never until storm"--Provided by publisher.

Forget It

Forget It
Anastacia-Reneé

"Anastacia Renée's FORGET IT draws the reader into the churning seas of dissolution--marriage, family, identity, livelihood--in language unknotted from the constraints of punctuation, syntax, sense--"eaten into seedless cherries"--and plunged into the fabular scape/scope of dreams, myth, fairytales, faith, race. Phantom births, ghosts, half-grown children, sex, betrayal, violence, anger, female body, the bloody aftermaths of dissolution sprawling, placental and umbilical, in the urgent, haunted language of dreaming and memory. City and speaker dissolve into one another, boundaries vanquished. What remains after dissolution? Talking to herself. From whence do (k)new form(s) arise? A "revelatory hymn", matrix upon which self and sense are (re-) configured as her own, Anastacia Renée's FORGET IT dances on the grave of the lost--fiery tempest, a phoenix of language and presence. When we wake up, nothing is forgotten."--Amazon.com.
