Pardon My Heart
Pardon My Heart: Poems | Marcus Jackson
2 posts | 1 read
Pardon My Heart is an exploration of love in the contemporary African American ethos. In this lyrically complex collection, the speakers and subjectsthe adult descendants of the Great Migrationreckon with past experiences and revelatory, hard-earned ideas about race and class. With a compelling blend of narrative, musicality, and imagery, Jacksons poems span a multitude of scenes, landscapes, and sensations. Pardon My Heart examines intimacy, memory, grief, and festivity while seeking out new, reflective sectors within emotion and culture. By means of concise portraiture and sonic vibrancy, Jacksons poems ultimately express the urgency and pliability of the human soul.

Title: Letting the Emptiness Become My Government
#poemaday
Sorry, Litsy friends! I've been so absent lately! Still reading but posting less in what feels like has been such a chaotic few months and now I'm in Chile, loving being fairly disconnected from things. But I remembered the other night, Litsy is fun to peruse in downtime b/c it's filled with awesome, positive people! Anyway, here's a poem. I am off to Las Trancas for the day!

DocBrown Miss you! Enjoy! 4y
