Lighting the Shadow is about a woman’s evolving journey through desire, grief, trauma, and the peculiar historical American psyche of desire and violence. These poems explore the international and psychological wars women survive―wars inflicted through various mediums that employ art, race, and literature. Furthermore, the collection is about a woman’s transformation and acceptance of her complicated attempts to balance her spirit’s own spectrum. Pulling the poet away from death, these poems insist that she open her life to her own powers and the powers of a greater world―a world that is both bright and dark.

Review:
Lighting the Shadow is a unique embodiment of the unseen space between language and spirit. . . . The imagery in these poems rips through to the reader with a freshness that comes only from a poet who knows the terrain of the subconscious . . . Bravo. Afaa Michael Weaver"

These poems are searing and ecstatic, peering into all manner of experience and peeling back layer after unexpected layer. . . . Lighting the Shadow is rare and revelatory. Tracy K. Smith"

Lighting the Shadow is by turns surreal and heart achingly real it is, at every turn, a book of spellbinding radiance. Terrance Hayes"
