Saul Williams

A fascinating collection of interconnected poems by Saul Williams reflecting on the demise of his relationship with Marcia Jones, his girlfriend, with whom he has a daughter, for several years. The speaker ruminates over freedom, ‘love’s suffering addiction’, the problems a lack of communication can cause and the visible and invisible scars a relationship can leave behind. Williams outlined concerning this collection: “I presented my feminine side with flowers she cut the stems and placed the stems and placed them gently down my throat and these tu lips might soon eclipse your brightest hopes.”
