E-PUB õ Indecency µ Intricate, Intimate, Difficult, and Confrontational Poems That Push at the Boundaries of Selfhood, Skin, Culture, Sexuality, and BloodIndecency is boldly and carefully executed and perfectly ragged In these poems, Justin Phillip Reed experiments with language to explore inequity and injustice and to critique and lament the culture of white supremacy and the dominant social order Political and personal, tender, daring, and insightful the author unpacks his intimacies, weaponizing poetry to take on masculinity, sexuality, exploitation, and the prison industrial complex and unmask all the failures of the structures into which society sorts us I don t think a two star rating is fair to this book Rather, it isreflective of my failure to grasp what Reed was really talking about It reminded me of Night Sky with Exit Wounds which I said It s lovely poetry and I can understand why others enjoy it, but I don t think I really got it His thumb heavy in the novel of my body kept my spine from snapping shut Does it make meor less of a top a subordinate clause which position privileges parataxis in what design do I hold I don t think a two star rating is fair to this book

what I was reading The ones I did understand were incredible, but there was just a lot of inscrutable poetry here Clearly, this is all brilliant work I just..prefer a bitaccessibility and that fault is mine, not the poet s Paroxysm is staggeringly good Across all the poems, Reed has a lot of prescient things to say I really wanted to love this book but whew I am honestly not smart enough to make

to say about blackness, violence, sexuality, stigma He challenges notions of what is truly indecent There is a lot of experimentation with form Some of it works and some of it does not This is absolutely a collection worth reading My response is purely borne of my own preferences, not the work in question Wanted to love this one but couldn t understand a good amount of it Justin Phillip Reed tackles pressing topics masculinity, sexuality, white supremacy, etc with raw emotion and leaves few clean conclusions His words pack a lot of power and show his pain and the depth of his feeling The queerness and blackness of this collection, and the way Reed navigates these social identities with so much heart and vulnerability, makes Indecency a necessary addition to the existing canon of poetry U Wanted to love this one but couldn t understand a good amount of it Justin Phillip Reed tackles pressing topics masculinity, sexuality, white supremacy, etc with raw emotion and leaves few

these poems, such that I could grasp a few lines, an emotion, or an overall subject but couldn t comprehend the poem as a whole Unsure if this stems from my lack of poetry reading comprehension or the obscurity of Reed s language Still, would recommend this to people who like poetry and who find themselves drawn to work that questions the white, heteronormative social order through a personal perspective I ve told this story I barely graduated.I stunted my own growth I don t know howto go home What you don t know isI needed someone like you but braver NowI just have issues with needing anyone at all.Somehow both sophisticated and brutal, Indecency, the 2018 National Book Award winner for poetry, is full of vivid imagery and beautiful language that I was constantly marveling at, but honestly a lot of what Reed was doing was over my head This book absolutely deserves five stars, and it also d I ve told this story I barely graduated.I stunted my own growth I don t know howto go
