Does your house have lions?
An African American odyssey that explores the life of the author's brother from the South to the North, where he gradually becomes immersed in the gay subculture of New York City. Told in the voices of the author, her brother, and their parents and ancestors, this brave epic poem shatters silences surrounding gay sexuality in African American families and imagines the possibility of reconciliation and love.

3 1/2 Stars. This is a poem rooted in Black traditions of epic, ancestral story-telling. This is a poem of loss and disconnect and healing and hope. This is a poem full of living and of dying. This is a poem I look forward to re-reading again and again. Read full review
