9780944048016: Hurrah's Nest (Cedar Tick Natural History Chapbook)

A vivid and varied collection that addresses family loyalties, dysfunction, violence, and differences, Hurrah's Nest is White's imaginative and emotionally honest exploration of growing up the second oldest, first daughter of seven siblings. Childhood experiences are looked at with rawness, sensitivity, and crafted with precision: be it the cutting of her dreadlocks, mother's abortion, drug trafficking, or her sister's developmental disability, the language is tender and startling. Hurrah's Nest--from the confusion of our lives--asks us to make meaning and good from what we've bargained and haven't bargained for.

From the Back Cover:

What you come to meet at ends:
ports and shantytowns,
me folded like a note
waiting to toss
myself to any wave
muscle enough to get me back.
Really, what is the point
of the sun's ritual,
the light and heat of its circling,
if what rivers through me
is a hunger--
the drought and flood of it?
