2 amazing works of poetry



Don't Call Us DeadDon't Call Us Dead by Danez Smith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A powerful, intense body of poetry by a gay HIV-positive black man confronting violence, love, sex, and the places they are intersect. Highly recommended.




Monument: Poems New and SelectedMonument: Poems New and Selected by Natasha Trethewey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A U.S. Poet Laureate and Nobel Prize winner, this book gathers some of Trethewey's best work. A person of mixed race, she examines her own past and the historical past of this country, its racial dealings and how women, particularly women of color or mixed origins, are portrayed in art. Powerful and highly recommended.

[I received an advanced e-galley of this book from Netgalley.]
