Throughout the collection, Dargan interweaves elements of his heritage with the present day--jazz influences blend with hip-hop; neoslave narratives run parallel with the intimate tales of civil rights leaders; post-9\/11 America is juxtaposed with family portraits of the sixties and seventies--to reveal the continuous, though ever-changing, music of the world around us. Whether capturing the famous Ali-Frazier fight in Manila or a trip to the local barbershop, Muddy Waters or boyhood blacktop games, Dargan gives voice to the most poignant and fleeting aspects of our everyday existence. With singular incisiveness and vigor, these poems act simultaneously as psalms and elegies, praising life at the same time they lament its inevitable passing.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:description<\/a> \"Foreword \/ by Quincy Troupe -- Acknowledgments -- Invocation : of the sun -- [Pt. 1] Chronograffiti -- Search for Robert Hayden -- Redefinition -- Last dragons -- Satin touch -- Ahboo -- Halfway house -- Single-ride -- This knight -- Dementia -- Life equation -- How Dwayne got knocked out -- *Early nineties urban slang for no-name sneakers -- nap-i-ness -- On men -- Surrender II : chop -- The battlefield -- Surrender III : study -- 6:38 a.m., Mississippi time -- [Pt. 2] Second sky -- I.
