Special Order


Sunlight Through Bullet Holes by Jessica Care Moore is a book of poetry you want and need in your collection. Hailing from Detroit, Moore mixes observation with passion and brevity. It s black intelligence filtered through rhythm and blues, so her siren songs melt into you. But what is she saying? That Detroit is having hard times magnified by the wider economic drought (or is it doubt?) of the United States. That she wishes her son a better life than one where Trayvon Martin wasn't just last year and what s happening this year isn't much better. That sometimes a woman needs time to be a woman with a man and their time may be fleeting and he may be Mr. Wrong during too much of it. Moore explores that her son is a blessing. She laments the agents of change coming for her city, erasing old for new. Yet there are so many other poems here, and such beautifully poignant syntax, that it may be too easy to say deep. Get it.
