Deliberate Speed of Ghosts
Maggie Rosen’s collection is a look back at a time of extreme racial tension and a snapshot of today. Her poems trace that tension from the 1960’s all the way up until the present. As the book progresses, it becomes all too apparent that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Rosen’s poems will move you and make you angry, hold you accountable and make you ask the looming question, “where do we go from here?”
