Wisdom Teeth

by Derrick Weston Brown - £13.99  PM Press (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781604864175 | ISBN 10: 1604864176

To consider Wisdom Teeth is to acknowledge inevitable movement, shift, and sometimes pain. Thereís change hidden just below the surface and, like it or not, once it breaks, everything has to make room. So goes the aptly titled debut poetry collection from poet and educator Derrick Weston Brown. Wisdom Teeth reveals the ongoing internal and external reconstruction of a poet's life and world, as told through a litany of forms and myriad of voices, some the poetís own.
 
Wisdom Teeth is a questioning work, a redefining of personal relationships, masculinity, race, and history. Itís a readjustment of bite, humor, and perspective as Brown channels hip-hop, Toni Morrison, and Snagglepuss to make way for the shudder and eruption of wisdom.
