text æ Missing You Metropolis Ø Gary Jackson

The exploits you find in my comics are no probable than snow in Sunnyvale I’m not as black as you dream                 This book makes for great discussion whether one likes it as in has an affinity for comic books etc or does not It's an interesting concept and I'm glad to see Jackson's effort realized in a complete bookIt is not necessarily the language and the weaving of comic book characters that prompted me to give Missing You Metropolis 4 stars; it's the lines that stick with me the day after I'd read them I'm left thinking about the nature of the lines whether my reaction is negative positive visceral or analyticallines that make me think about poetry and blood and race and lifeBlacks were still rare on our street while whites filled the neighborhood like dead leaves in pool water from StuartHe wanted to see how the veins pulled it all together hoping to make sense of god's machine from MachineI drudge down familiar streets careful to avoid high school crushes teachers bullies cousins who never made it out of the state they were born in from Gapwhy Mikey once wore a wedding dress to work; from BleedAnd I would feed you a lie one of the little ones the kind that turns strangers to lovers that runs words to poems from Listening to Plath in PoeticsCornell was an asphalt nigger from Cornell

Gary Jackson Ø Missing You Metropolis text

Missing You Metropolis     from “Luke Cage Tells It Like It Is With humor and the serious collector’s delight Gary Jackson imagines the comic book wo I have some issues with this one The poems were well written but almost all of the female characters in his poems only exist in relation to a man At this point I'd frankly rather an author not include women at all rather than write them so poorly especially when a few of the poems here are written from a woman's POV There was also one poem that struck me as actually rather problematic implying that a man who sexually harassed a woman at work is the real victim because he's black and she's white I don't dispute that race is still a contentious issue in America and that black men especially are punished far worse than their white counterparts but a man who harasses a woman is always the one at fault Period He is not Emmett Till and I found it incredibly distasteful that Jackson made that comparison
