Spend time in these pages and experience why we offer up pepper! Frank X Walker Kentucky Poet Laureate 2013-2014 Author of Isaac Murphy: I Dedicate This Ride the road is long, is a sorghum of love and truth; rage and triumph; uprising and love making. From Baltimore to Lexington, Kentucky, Coleman s poems are filled with black boys building on the curve/of an hypotenuse/rather than the/ inelegant vertices/ of a square. Black nerd, comic book philosopher, pastor poet and keeper of Affrilachian truth, Gerald Coleman has done the work and here is the proof. Kelly Norman Ellis Author of Tugaloo Blues and Offerings of Desire the road is long speaks of moments anchored inside memories that linger like the warmth of a kiss or a night in a forbidden country. This culling originates below buried feet; it tempts the steel of emotion until from an open mouth, a water fountain of verses emerges in full medieval armor like a knight refusing to surrender, it howls. Ricardo Nazario y Colon Author of The Recital and Of Jibaros and Hillbillies Gerald L. Coleman delivers poems that are confident and sensitive, funny and heartbreaking, vulnerable and bristling-what life is and a poet should be. the road is long proves Coleman understands that connection, as a child s education in comic books and neighborhood footraces makes way for a wise seer who can t look away from American hypocrisy. Let Coleman s refrain and my life is not cheap ring out and touch every ear. This is a resilience to be admired. Mitchell L. H.
