Read full description of the books:



Chances are, if you don't know about the clock-wearing, public enemy, Flavor Flav and how his lyrics contributed to the campaign against police brutality in America, you won't enjoy this collection.
You hosed down whole crowds
in loudmouth flame-retardant spit.
If you haven't been exposed to the rhythm and poetry of the hip-hop verse or the depths of hip-hop beyond its mainstream controversial language and stereotypical imagery, you could miss these lyrical innuendos. If you haven't received access to hip hop's literary soul and its contemporary contribution to culture and language, you could misunderstand this collection.
So wrap your cultured-up skull around this.
If you haven't bobbed to the rhythm of Langston Hughes' rebellious lines of liberty, or marveled at Countee Cullen's intellectual context of culture, it is possible that you will miss Wicker's homage to his.

If you could care less about
prosody
poetic specifics like the ode poem
poetic devices like iambic pentameter

If you aren't tempted to run your finger across the different types of meters you come across within a collection...it is possible that this one, which has that and more, won't mean a thing to you.

And if none of these things matter, simply take a look at the publishing credits. Tell me, how often do you see a modern collection of poetry published by The Big Ones?

The trailing silence hearkens a boarded-up

project building. And in one great big empty
alleyway after another, people are boxed in

or burning up. Vanishing into thin air. Here
I am again, sketch pad in hand, glued to this spot
