I started reading this for national poetry month (April)....so you see how long it took me to finish.  But that's all me, not Brown.  So much of this went over my head, but the poems I understood I really enjoyed.  The Duplex style is very cool.

A moving collection of poems that are hard to describe and I plan to reread a few times in order to have the space I need to sit with them.

 Gorgeously sad while also seething with rage, this collection is a must-read.
