if you turned down the media
so I could write a book
then you could look me up
in your voluminous recyclopedia

Praise For…

“Mullen's is a stunningly lyrical voice, rich and resonant, engaged and engaging.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“In her previous four collections, Harryette Mullen's influences have ranged from language poetry to the rhythms and playfulness of the black vernacular . . . Suffused with both politics and literary theory, Mullen's language refuses to be weighed down by either.” —The New York Times Book Review
