The Sweet Taste of Lightning: Po'ems and Po'em·o·logues

Copertina anteriore
arsenal pulp press, 1998 - 119 pagine

Canada's foremost action poet Sheri-D Wilson returns with The Sweet Taste of Lightning, a sublime new collection of poems that explore love and mortality with her distinct jazz-inflected sensibility. Startling and vulnerable, these are poems that speak from the heart, whether they be sassy missives from the street, or intimate confessions from one lover to another. There are also the trademark language stylings that evoke Sheri-D's powerful stage performances, full of wry, sexy truths. Lightning never tasted sweeter than in the cool poetic world of Sheri-D Wilson.
