The many haiku, narrative, and elegies in this collection of poems contain Sanchez's own brand of Afro-American lyricism, and range in tone from anger, to cynicism, to reverence. The subjects range from autobiography to social commentary, from motherhood to South Africa. All the poems reflect Sanchez's concern with expanding contours of the English language to facilitate her self-expression as a black woman. The collection also reflects her interest in the words and images of Third World artists. She incorporates Bob Marley, Pablo Neruda, and Nicholas Guillen into her own world view by using excerpts from their poems as epigraphs to five sections of this collection.
