“A writer is a person pushing a full cart from the farm to the people. Sexuality, gender, slavery, race, and history…a planet crying out for change: these are some of the wares this farmer has found growing on the land…. This book is the very garden and the farm of a body saying what it had to say, one day after another, one day to the next…. A poem is a relationship a person has with the resources that happen to be in the day.”-from Samana’s introduction

About the Book

This book is not about Sinead O’ Connor or the gathering impulse of blue birds or the rotten plans of serge-robed men or Aunt Foxy’s potted peppers. Even we, its progenitors, will see this book on a shelf somewhere someday and think: Now we will learn all there is to learn about Sinead O’ Connor and her coat of a thousand bluebirds, having forgotten the way human beings forget the importance of remembering. But Sinead will always remain the ethereal Sinead, and the path to the shorn woman with the songbird’s throat will remain (un)regrettably undetectable.
