Poetry. African Diaspora Studies. Lasana M. Sekou's 37 POEMS was written in China while the St. Martin poet was a visiting fellow at Asia's first International Writers' Workshop (2004) in Hong Kong and Beijing. Coming from a 37-square-mile Caribbean island, Sekou has been steadily reaching readers in the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia through his writing and performances. Readers who think they know his poetic style will be pleasantly surprised at his streamlined use of language in 37 POEMS, which makes the collection even more potent than Sekou's previous release, THE SALT REAPER, which predates 37 POEMS by just a few months. "Somewhere between the grace of haiku and the weight of the epic, Sekou has crafted his most elegant work to date. 37 POEMS is both love song and lament"-Drisana Deborah Jack, author of "The Rainy Season."
