With the urgent force of a rallying cry, Smith documents the many external and internal forces that imperil black bodies.  His pain from his experience as an HIV-positive, queer black man is palpable, and every poem brims with anger, regret and unfathomable sadness. Take your time with each poem, for every one is rich, complex and worthy of re-reading.
