Blood Memory

Blood Memory.  University of Pittsburgh Press, 2016.

“She is the last woman of her line. Her new poems end and begin with A. Phillip Randolph and Pullman Porters, her enjambments are Ma Rainey and Lawdy Miz Clawdy, her leading men are the last Black men on the planet named Isom, her major planets are porches and backroads. She is still the master storyteller to the 60 million of the Passage. When i didn't know how to be a poet, I first read Colleen McElroy to slowly walk the path to how. —Nikky Finney”
