just finished

Terrance Hayes’ debut collection of poems Muscular Music- took me a while to track down but only about an hour to read. Couldn’t put it down. It is incredible for all the reasons Terrance is Brilliant! It is honest, revealing and casts a character or two that we can see in ourselves in a non-prototypical. This collection is fresh and vibrant. It is elegaic in its apology for the Human Being inside of the POC. Lovely.

“I want my father to kill me,/ & use my blood for fuel./ I want to live forever/ like the singer resurrected / in the record’s groove.”

Me too Terrance, me too.
