The Big Book of Exit Strategies free pdf Praise for Jamaal May: "Linguistically acrobatic [and] beautifully crafted. . . . [Jamaal May's] poems, exquisitely balanced by a sharp intelligence mixed with earnestness, makes his debut a marvel." "Publishers Weekly"Following Jamaal May's award-winning debut collection, "Hum "(2013), these new poems explore parallel landscapes of the poet's interior and an insidious American condition. Using dark humor that helps illuminate the pains of maturity and loss of imagination, May uncovers language like a skilled architect digging up bones of the past to expose what lies beneath the surface of the fragile human condition.From: "Ask Where I've Been": "Ask about the tornado of fists.The blows landed. If you canwatch it all the spit and blood frozenagainst snow, you can probably tellI am the too-narrow road winding outof a crooked city built of laughter, abandon, feathers and drums.Ask only if you can watch streetlights bow, bridges arc, and power lines sag, and still believe what matters mostis not where I bendbut where I am growing."Jamaal May is a poet, editor, and filmmaker from Detroit, Michigan, where he taught poetry in public schools and worked as a freelance audio engineer and touring performer. His poetry won the 2013 Indiana Review Poetry Prize and appears in journals such as "Poetry," "Ploughshares," the "Believer," "NER," and the "Kenyon Review." May has earned an MFA from Warren Wilson College as well as fellowships from Cave Canem and The Stadler Center for Poetry at Bucknell University. He founded the Organic Weapon Arts Chapbook Press."
