I like this chapbook, but its language, though often melodic, seems coded, rendering its message inaccessible. Its obviously about the injustice of Amadou Diallos death at the hands of the NYPD, but I didnt get the owl as justice or the sideways poem with the line, 41 misty whiskers in the milk, which appears to be the centerpiece.

The line seems to be in reference to the 41 shots fired, but I dont see the connection between the poem and Diallo. Maybe I expect too much or the poems just go over my head, but I dont fully grasp them, despite picking up a few references. Its still a good read for its poetic language, but it might take some additional attempts to fully decipher.
