Poetry. "Whether writing about photographs, `lovelust,' yellow cabs, syncopated jazz, or tackling the dilemma of identity and race, poet-artist Anyssa Kim offers us a range of verbal music stretching from high voltage red to muted blues that linger in the afternotes of memory. Experimental in her use of lines, and taking on metaphors that dance and flex muscles, her work pulses with savvy and subtle messages or urban life. With this book Kim makes an impressive debut. Brava"--Colette Inez. "Reading her poems is like walking into a museum of fine subtle pieces. One has to take a second trip lest one misses something. A fine imagination at work"--Ishmael Reed.
