"At a time when human existence is threatened by the absurdity of power and greed, Toure advances a poetry that celebrates and castigates, that kisses, curses and sings, reminding us as Blake, Whitman, Bly, Cardenal and Mackey that our soul emerges from soil; that we are tied to the cosmic umbilical of poetry and song; that even in the midst of foretold dangers, there is still time enough for dreaming and for reason..."
(Tony Medina, poet, activist, professor of English and creative writing, Howard University)
