Satire is an intriguing literary agent in blues. Can a poet who measures life in stanzas and rhyme be tone-deaf – to one of the chief characters in the collection, Ted the Rooster, who crows at inopportune times (Maybe this Rooster needs to invest in a wrist watch), we enjoy blues & she enjoys us because she’s fluid and hard-nosed. Simultaneously, surviving, thriving, nurturing, creating, and parenting require these elements if you’re marginalized because of your race, color, ethnicity or gender. This collection demands that we keep pushing, even if our hands are tied behind our backs.
