Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like the Singing Coming off the Drums is a dazzling exploration of the intimate and public landscapes of passion from one of our master poets. In haiku, tanka, and sensual blues, Sonia Sanchez writes of the many forms love takes: burning, dreamy, disappointed, vulnerable. With words that revel and reveal, she shares love's painful beauty.

Synopsis:

A collection of sensual love poems from one of the most prominent African-American poets and a leader of the Black Arts Movement.
