A rebuke of American racism and violence by a poet of "scrutinizing intellect, imagination, and soul" (Terrance Hayes).

In urgent new poems, Mitchell L. H. Douglas depicts the assault on people of color in America’s increasingly divided Heartland. A devotee of American popular culture, from rock 'n' roll to Star Wars to Marvel comic books, Douglas now wonders whether we will withstand its most odious, self-destructive elements in this searing collection.
