   Homie is everything
Danez will have you laughing and crying from one poem to the next. For example, sometimes when I am outside, I hear Danez's voice in my head exclaiming trees! This is essential. Danez, thank you.
From the second I saw the bright neon cover and the disclaimed title on the next page, I knew that this book was something special. Smith's play with form is evocative, their language is incredible and they can craft poems with part-charm and part-heartbreak with ease. This book made me laugh, cry and think deeply about the themes presented.
This book gave me a slightly different perspective compared to how I usually view poetry, but that is definitely a GOOD thing. I enjoyed every minute of my reading.
A hugely powerful collection of poetry that has influenced the way i see the race, love, the world. Throughout the language is amazing and softness. Thank you for the kind words.
   Astonishing jagged poems for difficult times
This remarkable collection never flags. Its percussive colloquial sometimes made-up language and inventive rhythms are deliciously exhausting. Rage-colored but overwhelmed with love for the poets'homies, the poems treat sex, suicide, disease, poetry as a weapon, gaybashing, farts, cops, and a host of other topics currently raw in America, but forever raw in the narrator's consciousness. It has a particular resonance in the nation's unrest and rage after the assassination of George Floyd.
   Read it!
Good luck, Matt. Good thing, John Rossell. The best of the bunch was good stuff. Nice to read from afar. Great read! Great reading, great pictures. It loved her. She has loved it. Elle loved her a lot. Please choose more than 5 stars.
   Gorgeous Language and Gut Wrenching Honesty
For most of my life, I didn 't pay much attention to the world, but now I follow pretty closely the work of the brilliant Danez Smith. This new book by Smith is perhaps even better than Don 't call us dead. Here I found myself saying out loud wow '' at the end of one of the poems. Language, approachable honesty, and style that is devastatingly non-expert like me ''. Smith moves from the dramatic to the heartbreaking, sometimes in a single poem. Even if contemporary poetry isn 't your thing, Smith is a voice worth hearing.
A heartfelt collection of extremely beautiful poems. I would recommend this to others and repurchase for another.
