Reviews

"So many of these poems just blow me away. Incredibly beautiful and powerful." --Michelle Alexander, Author of The New Jim Crow
"Counting Descent is a tightly-woven collection of poems whose pages act like an invitation to New Orleans, to the spades' table, to mom's kitchen, to the kiss on a woman's wrist, to conversations with hydrants and cicadas..."--Elizabeth Acevedo
"These poems shimmer with revelatory intensity, approaching us from all sides to immerse us in the America that America so often forgets."--Gregory Pardlo
