Veronica: A Suite in X Parts is a tale of every Veronica, every femme trying to live despite the chronicle of a death foretold and the gratuitous violence of everyday life. It is a beautiful movement, a lamentation, a chorale, an algorithm, and V and X of it attending to an rewriting the mathematics of black social life. The mother mourning, the girl slain, the unloved woman, the captive maternal, the stone who wants to dance, the girl done wrong too many times are some of V’s many faces. This suite of poems takes the breath away, demands that you bow your head and get ready for the storm.”
