"These poems of speak of kinship, the stuff that gives one roots and a sense of belonging not just to a particular lineage, but to the world community. The poems journey from Jamaica to New York, to what it really means to be a Caribbean immigrant, and have to make do with unfulfilled or foiled dreams. Mostly, the poems are about love -- enduring, long-lasting, gifted -- written by one who bathes and dresses in love. So read these poems, and experience unconditional love."
