The World is Round

InnerLight Publishing, 2003.

Nikky Finney

The World Is Round focuses on the intimacy of life. The intimacy of family. The intimacy of struggle. The intimacy of community. The intimacy of sensuality. The intimacy of hatred. The intimacy of hunger. In this collection of poems I continue to chart my belief that human beings can be better than we are. In this book I am a chorus of monks. I am an elephant. Sweetgrasss. The confederate flag. My motherís umbilical cord. I am a southern congressmanís retarded son. A Black womanís grotesquely cut body. My fatherís last cigarette.
