The Detroit Poems.
THE DETROIT POEMS.
The 5th book by Poet, Joel Fluent Greene.
First print, signed copy.
My largest collection of work to this date. All Detroit poems. All an honest reflection of the city I know and love. No gentrified words, no petrified thoughts. Only the poetry that a beautifully raw city like Detroit deserves. From Dexter, down to Vernor, over to Bewick. From The African World Festival to Dally in the Alley. From our neverending winters, to our too short summers.
Our slang. Our stance. Our walk. Our dance.
This book is for those that know what being "Detroiter" truly means. This book is for those hungry for authentic voices in Detroit poetry.
These words are THE DETROIT POEMS.
Words by Joel Fluent Greene.
