Bathwater Wine

Wanda Coleman

“[Coleman] is a poet whose angry and extravagant music, so far beyond baroque, has been making itself heard across the divide between West Coast and East, establishment and margins, slams and seminars, across the too-American rift among races and genders, for two decades. [She] excels in public performance…but her poems do not require [her] physical presence: they perform themselves.”—Marilyn Hacker
