THE VOYAGE is a collection of poems culled from a lifetime of meditations on self, family, time, and ageing; it also reflects on political and social aspects of human lives, such as hubris, abuse of power, racism and oppression.
About the earlier poems in this collection, George Elliott Clarke said: “. . . at times stunning work. Rich and powerful poems. I especially like the political and biographical verses as well as the obvious wit and intellect in play.”
