As seems to be the case with most of Brand's works, not everything in this long poem is immediately accessible. It will certainly take several readings to fully grasp all the meaning behind Brand's beautiful language here. Beyond that, the words and phrases here do read smoothly with a beautiful ebb and flow, and convey the sense of transience and trauma and experience of Yasmine, the central character in the work.

There is nothing Dionne Brand tries her hand at that is not a wonder. Her new work of poetry sparkles.
