Trailer ✓ Indecency PDF by Ï Justin Phillip Reed Intricate, Intimate, Difficult, And Confrontational Poems That Push At The Boundaries Of Selfhood, Skin, Culture, Sexuality, And BloodIndecency Is Boldly And Carefully Executed And Perfectly Ragged In These Poems, Justin Phillip Reed Experiments With Language To Explore Inequity And Injustice And To Critique And Lament The Culture Of White Supremacy And The Dominant Social Order Political And Personal, Tender, Daring, And Insightful The Author Unpacks His Intimacies, Weaponizing Poetry To Take On Masculinity, Sexuality, Exploitation, And The Prison Industrial Complex And Unmask All The Failures Of The Structures Into Which Society Sorts Us Complex, clever but passionate poems The Indecency of living, of being black, of being gay, of being alive in a hostile world Full of invented forms, each poem is a world unto itself but the cumulative power is intense Poetry of its time for all time.
I ve told this story I barely graduated.
I stunted my own growth I don t know howto go home What you don t know isI needed someone like you but braver NowI just have issues with needing anyone at all.
Somehow both sophisticated and brutal, Indecency, the 2018 National Book Award winner for poetry, is full of vivid imagery and beautiful language that I was constantly marveling at, but honestly a lot of what Reed was doing was over my head This book absolutely deserves five stars, and it also deserves the kind of attention I don t feel I can give it right now And so, Indecency will join Louise Gl ck s Faithful and Virtuous Night in my list of collections I need to reread someday.

I m back to work so this won t be as long or thorough as the other ones, I think, but that s also because this collection was incredible and at the same time difficult to access On one level, I mean this in a basic sense I frequently had to check a dictionary, Google a linguistics reference but also in some other sense that I m having trouble articulating Maybe I ll chew through it as I type this review The voice felt harsh, cold, closed, solitary, but surging with emotion anger often at people s capacities to move on so easily from others , specifically black queer, trauma , fear, loneliness, others A really compelling and kind of scarily bitter intelligent voice Reminded me of the narrator from Teju Cole s Open City Not that there aren t moments of warmth, solidarity, like Carolina Prayer Let us smell rain Let the breeze through an oak hymn t
