t'ai freedom ford's second collection of poems, & more black, is direct, ingenious, vibrant, alive, queer, & BLACK. By turns tough and sexy, wrapped up in the evolving language and sonics of life, these poems take their cue from Wanda Coleman's American Sonnets as they rhapsodize and dialogue with artists such as Carrie Mae Weems, Glenn Ligon, and Wangechi Mutu, along with many other musicians, artists, and writers. The kinetic energy of ford's words leap off the page in rebellious, stunning, and revelatory fashion-poems that mesmerize with sheer velocity and telling pauses. & more black won the Lambda Literary Award in Lesbian Poetry in 2020 and was a finalist for the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award.
