Kissing Caskets

Backorder (temporarily out of stock)

Description

Poetry. Like most young black girls growing up in Northern California, Mahogany L. Browne tussles with ideas of femininity & gender roles, addiction & the prison industrial complex, sexuality & seclusion. Inquiries of the living and dying survive on the pages of KISSING CASKETS as the reader is invited to do the self excavation. Each poem is a eulogized celebration of what we lose to the dark when no one is looking.
