Synopsis

"& colin kaepernick is my president, who kneels on the air

bent toward a branch, throwing apples down to the children & vets



& rihanna is my president, walking out of global summits

with wine glass in hand, our taxes returned in gold

to dust our faces into coins

& my mama is my president, her grace stunts

on amazing, brown hands breaking brown bread over

mouths of the hungry until there are none unfed

& my grandma is my president & her cabinet is her cabinet

cause she knows to trust what the pan knowshow the skillet wins the war" -from 'my president'



Danez Smith is our President.



A mighty anthem about the saving grace of friendship, Danez Smith's highly anticipated collection Homie is rooted in their search for joy and intimacy in a time where both are scarce. In poems of rare power and generosity, Smith acknowledges that in a country overrun by violence, xenophobia and disparity, and in a body defined by race, queerness, and diagnosis, it can be hard to survive, even harder to remember reasons for living. But then the phone lights up, or a shout comes up to the window, and family - blood and chosen - arrives with just the right food and some redemption.



Part friendship diary, part bright elegy, part war cry, Homie is written for friends: for Danez's friends, for yours.
