    The nonbinary poet’s collection employs the language of dreams and fraught journeys, laying bare the historical and current threats to black and queer bodies. These free verse poems are rich with alliteration (“the brine of our brutish blood”) and innovative in their layouts. Amid the often melancholy subject matter come cheeky entries, like a sex dream about Michelle Obama. In the tradition of Natasha Trethewey and Danez Smith, Phillips sees a through line from slavery to racism past and presen The nonbinary poet’s collection employs the language of dreams and fraught journeys, laying bare the historical and current threats to black and queer bodies.
