    One thought on “Walking with Ghosts”

    1. In Seattle, 100 lit candles(I wanted the city to burn.)In San Francisco, a rainbow flag hung half-mast/(I wanted the earth to split open)In DC, the president finally spoke.(I wanted screams to shatter glass.)In Laramie, they wore armbands.(I wanted revolution.)

    2. This is not an easy book to read, and it shouldn't be. It took me months. One tear-filled poem at a time. There is a ring of beauty and joy hemming each poem in like a ring of salt to keep out despair. I loved the imagery and the heart and the life found here, even in the face of overwhelming odds.

    3. This is a book of strong poems, it brings the reader through many emotions: anger, love, fear, sadness. He uses his words to educate, mourn, heal and take back power. He gives us his native language and traditions.My favorite poem is his long one written after Reagan's death, "Eulogy for the 40th," he reminds us there are many in America who, "We don't care if Ronnie was a gentleman or looked good in/cowboy boots. Please, don't talk about the smile flashing/in his eyes.//Murdered nuns flashed in [...]

    4. Vivid imagery intertwined with experiences both unique and shared.I read through on a long bus ride, but anticipate many more years of listening and learning.

    5. I really appreciated this book for the fierce history & survival stories. Think that many of these pieces would be amazing performed live!

    6. Qwo-Li Driskill has a way of describing tragedy with a beautiful usage of language. Each poem I felt deeply. Beautiful book.
