Interdisciplinary artist Jibade-Khalil Huffman’s second collection of deceptively flippant poems is a jam of ventriloquy and frequencies and the plainest vernacular of our day: Celebrity and low-brow entertainment and high aspirations for seeing and knowing, whiteness and blackness and the cryptic laughs available to us in the gray areas of our cultural containment. Huffman’s poems are abject, catchy, and ashy.
