Point Blank

Point Blank - Alan King

All in all a really enjoyable collection. I especially enjoyed the poems contrasting what it means to be black in America as opposed to Trinidad & Tobago where his parents grew up. There are many astute observations about race in here, but there are also plenty of poems about youth, manhood, family, romance, and even several about comic books. A well rounded collection with a strong voice and snappy metaphors. Well worth the read.
