What We Ask of Fleshby Remica L. Bingham
Synopses & Reviews
"What We Ask of Flesh, like the flesh itself, is full of honey and fire. It's impossible not to feel called by these poems, summoned by their rich sound and vatic voice."—Amy Gerstler
Blending biblical characters into a deeply personal history, What We Ask of Flesh tells of women through time, their spirits borne through broken flesh, through wombs and memories. The body becomes instrument as words explore the mystical connection between what was and is.
Women are burdened
leading from each father's house
Remica Bingham currently teaches at Norfolk State University.
Through biblical re-tellings, narratives, and lyric poems, this young African-American poet examines and heals wounds of flesh and spirit.
