Arab Today, arab today Head Off & Split by Nikky Finney

London - Arabstoday

The poems in Nikky Finney\'s fourth collection, Head Off & Split, sustain a sensitive and intense dialogue with emblematic figures and events in African-American life: from Civil Rights matriarch Rosa Parks, to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, from a brazen girl strung out on lightning, to a terrified woman abandoned on a rooftop during Hurricane Katrina. Her poet\'s voice is defined by an intimacy, which holds a soft yet exacting-eye on the erotic, on uncanny political and family events, like her mother\'s wedding waltz with S.C. Senator Strom Thurmond, and then again on the heart-breaking hilarity of an American President\'s final state of the union address. Artful and intense, Finney\'s poems ask us to be mindful of what we fraction, fragment, cut off, dice, dishonor, or throw away, powerfully evoking both the lawless and the sublime.
