Dead On Arrival

Dead On Arrival



Jaki Shelton Green

Reissue of Jaki Shelton Green's acclaimed premier collection of poetry. Green's earlier works pulse with the intoxicating rhythms and fierce clarity of image that made her one of North Carolina's most popular poets. Here is an artist at turns angry and wickedly funny, demanding justice yet possessed of a refined grace.
