Harmony Holiday

Harmony Holiday appears in the latest edition of Poetry and her poems wreck me. Political, musical, funny, painful, beautiful, and original. They're prose poems, by and large, but O, man, do they sing. Her book, Negro League Baseball, is available from Fence Books. I just ordered it. I suggest you do the same.


Becoming men is like that, degrading, uplifting, denial, lazily caving in Isis and ice until all of our guesses are obsolete...
