Review: Point Blank by Alan King

Posted on

After a long time away, it turns out I still exist. Catch my review of Point Blank by Alan King over at Run & Tell That.

The city is a song. Byron Lee & The Dragonaires fill a kitchen and neighbors shriek neighbors from a front porch; the author’s niece sings out an infant’s discovery and Stevie Wonder plays on the radio. This is the soundtrack supporting Alan King’s 2016 collection Point Blank from Silver Birch Press, pulsing through poems that deliver the urban scene as art piece.
