Poetry. BLOOD SUGAR is a disturbing and evocative collection of new work and selected poems previously featured in Blackman's popular chapbooks Pretty, Sweet, and Nice. It is futile to resist her brutal accounts of obsession and beauty. So give in. Blackman's spoken-word vignettes conjure up bleak, dangerous, death-haunted plots with matter-of-fact detail...Blackman has her own gift for tersely poetic aphorism--and a gift for turning nightmares into revelations --New York Times. [Blackman's] apocalyptic, spoken-word electrolysis...is a biting diagnosis of modern society -Rolling Stone. Beautiful, hypnotic...violence and sex intermingle and all pleasures are suspect --Entertainment Weekly. Sassy. Direct. Contemporary. Often merciless-impressive throughout --Gwendolyn Brooks. All girls are born with wings./They never tell you these things --from Fifteen, She Learns.
