Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Stunning, highly original poems that celebrate the richness of the author's multicultural tradition, Teeth explores loves, wars, wild hope, defiance, and the spirit of creativity in a daring use of language and syntax. Behind this language one senses a powerful, inventive woman who is not afraid to tackle any subject, including rape, genocide, and love, always sustained by an optimistic voice, assuring us that in the end justice will triumph and love will persevere.

LOVE,

you be the reason why

we swagger & jive,

lift the guitar, & pick up the axe.

when it is i tilt my hat to the side,

wearing colors & perfumes, it's cause, love,

you did it to me. oh,

you do sure turn my tongue to fiddle,

& make the salt taste sweet. man,

i don't need a rooster, or peacock even,

to help me spend my time, nope,

just you, love, right & solid as

a line.
