Item description for The Headless Saints (New Issues Poetry & Prose) by Myronn Hardy...

"'To stare is to see nothing. / It's in quiet observation where all becomes visible.' These lines sum up the vigilant spirit of Myronn Hardy's agile second book, The Headless Saints, which offers an apt vision of the black Diaspora in cogent, kaleidoscopic shards. With a meticulous eye, he sees 'white chickens thin as vertebrae' or contemplates the inedible 'blood porridge' of a violent, bigoted world. Hardy's cosmopolitan poems can seem as delicate as a trellised vine or as strong as ironwork: he's a quietly artful, wonderfully clear-sighted poet." --Cyrus Cassells

Reviews - What do customers think about The Headless Saints (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?

A haunting yet exceptional testimony against the evils of genocide in all its forms.  Apr 2, 2008
Written by award-winning African-American poet Myronn Hardy, The Headless Saints is an anthology of free-verse poetry that memorializes those who survived human cruelty throughout history. Some poems are directly from the perspective of those who survived losing loved ones to invasion and colonization; others address the creation of the first ghetto, or the aftermath of other atrocities committed against people of color. A haunting yet exceptional testimony against the evils of genocide in all its forms. "The Living": White gold crowns on water green / swirls into cobalt light pierces. // Coral broken a heart with exposed / valves arteries veins severed by currents. // Seaweed circles legs but will not pull / another body under. This time it drags // a living man to shore.
