Reviews
"Eloquent, cosmopolitan, acute, at home in Harlem or Dakar, Paris of Provincetown, or on a back porch 'down home,' Melvin Dixon wrote poems of a lyrical complexity, an intellectual forthrightness, imbued with a love of language(s) which mirrored his love of the physical world, of cities, of music, of bodies. He was as adept at the erotics of compassion. We are fortunate to have this last book--even as we mourn its author." --Marilyn Hacker
"The book's exhortation to active humanity and remembrance is as haunting and healing as death-will-not-part-us gospel." --Cyrus Cassells
