About the Book

"A writer is a person pushing a full cart from the farm to the people. Sexuality, gender, slavery, race, and history...a planet crying out for change: these are some of the wares this farmer has found growing on the land.... This book is the very garden and the farm of a body saying what it had to say, one day after another, one day to the next.... A poem is a relationship a person has with the resources that happen to be in the day."-from Samana's introduction
