This book felt like when you wait so long for something to happen and then it does but it's much better than you ever imagined. you close your eyes at the end of each poem, and it's there, the dip of the stomach. it was an amazing experience, this book is a gift. in more ways than one. :)

I gave this book 3.5 stars. I have loved Rudy Francisco as a spoken word poet for sometime and was really excited that he published some of his poetry.

Despite the spelling mistakes and the fact that this little collection of poems is far too short, I can't give this anything less than five stars. Rudy Francisco has been blowing my mind with his words for a long time. There is magic in those hands of his and power in his voice. You need to pay h...

I am giving this collection five stars even though it is so short, because it's so raw, and so beautiful. It doesn't contain some of his most recent work; but the poems it does have are moving, and very raw. His metaphors are amazing. Rudy Francisco is a joy to watch, and read.
