In the series of promoting my #debut #fulllength #poetrycollection “My Body Lives Like a Threat”” by FlowerSong Press, today I’m proud to share this blurb by award winning poet and writer, Jacquese Armstrong.
Jacquese Armstrong is a poet/writer.Her first poetry chapbook, dance of the shadows, was released June 2017. She has been published in For Harriet, A Gathering of the Tribes, The Rising Phoenix Review, Black Magnolias Literary Journal and Ourselves/Black.
Just to gain a little insight between interstices, I recommend the reader starts with the title poem before being wooed and devoured by Megha’s craft’s excellent attention to her social justice perspective.
The line that sells the book for me is:
every time I twist my tongue to
shape a word, I mispronounce
“a new threat is born.”
―Jacquese Armstrong, Author, Blues legacy ©2019, Winner 2019 Naomi Long Madgett Poetry Award.
My debut full length is currently open for pre-orders at FlowerSong Press.
