9781936205356: As Good As Mango

As Good as Mango is a journey told in the sensual language of blues and jazz. It moves from the landscape of colonial Africa into the colonial American South, and into the present. The hauntings of the past come alive with echoes of unclaimed history.
The poems in this collection simultaneously affirm and inspect black identity — and identity in general. These are the poems of the bitter/sweet taste on the tongues of exiles searching for home.

“So” You like “so’s” to make points.I like them for their transient beauty,wafered between statements ofmeaning, leading nowhere, like starssparkling above earth. Whoseclever stars are these, peekingthrough fog, or trailing acrossempty space, like slow movingfireworks?What intern is this, laughing atthe nurses, mocking the surgeons?What beginnings that don’t begin,really, like starting to have sexwhile watching the television.Sooo, what are we going to watch now?So can you come over after work?Like so. Like sooo cool. So? SoI think the hearts of mothers inNigeria must be exploding likebombs when they see their babiesgoing off to war. So the waythey go on with such dexterity.
