Poetry. Dicko King calls this work "an ancestral chronicle," but it's bigger than that—something more like a species chronicle. King traces us out of the primordial ooze through our revolutions and migrations, and then, only finally, to his clan and family. This is poetry rising out of the blood and bones.
Dicko King is the author of BIRD YEARS (Mayapple Press, 2017) and DOGGERLAND: ANCESTRAL POEMS (Grid Books, 2015). He was born in the old Carney Hospital in South Boston, and was raised in St. Margaret's parish in Dorchester. He lives in Phoenix with his wife, Treva and the ghosts of the past.
