Poetry collection by Bro Yao (Hoke S. Glover)
“What does a man ‘trying / hard not to disappear / trying hard to stay / just above the world’ inherit? Like a line tossed from a fishing rod into murky waters, these poems aim to hook the illusive answers. With generosity, curiosity, and deep compassion, Bro. Yao’s poems cast a wide net of inquiry–of the man himself and of his elders–both ancestral and literary. With grace and tenderness, these poems admit what they know of the ‘sport and hunger’ and ‘excuse and mystery’ of mythical notions of manhood. Like his literary foremother, Lucille Clifton, Bro Yao undertands that to grasp wisdom and beauty, he need not to look further than the good times, troubles, and triumphs of his own lineal house.”
