Waves of You: Love Poems

Waves of You: Love Poems is an emotional expression of profound and passionate love language that you can make your own.

Meant to be read aloud to the one you love, it is brimming with blooming romance, enduring love, and alchemical connection.

From “sun drenched smiles” and “wide eyed wonderment” to “sanguine summers” and “umbrella lined beaches,” this collection of whimsical poetry “will carry you…into a boundless sea” of love.

No, I cannot end
your waves of pain,
but I will lift you up
and always
raise you higher,
so, you can rise
above them.

In this collection, you will find heartfelt poetry and prose celebrating romantic love and the joys of falling in and sustaining love in all its fluidity.

Collected Poems

A representative collection of the life work of the much honored poet and a founder of the Black Arts movement, spanning the 4 decades of her literary career.

Gathering highlights from all of Sonia Sanchez's poetry, this compilation is sure to inspire love and community engagement among her legions of fans. Beginning with her earliest work, including poems from her first volume, Homecoming (1969), through to 2019, the poet has collected her favorite work in all forms of verse, from Haiku to excerpts from book length narratives. Her lifelong dedication to the causes of Black liberation, social equality, and women's rights is evident throughout, as is her special attention to youth in poems addressed to children and young adults.

As Maya Angelou so aptly put it: Sonia Sanchez is a lion in literature's forest. When she writes she roars, and when she sleeps other creatures walk gingerly.


Tenderness meets pain meets joy here, offering up the voices of Black folks fostering connection with their children, their lovers, and themselves. Christian's third collection of poetry takes the reader through love and longing, and manifests how we all cope and get dressed again after the harsh reality of our world lays us bare. From ghazals about erotic kinks to the disappointment of a father, these poems explore the clothes we reach for first when loss strips us naked.

Our Work Is Everywhere: An Illustrated Oral History of Queer and Trans Resistance

Over the past ten years, we have witnessed the rise of queer and trans communities that have defied and challenged those who have historically opposed them. Through bold, symbolic imagery and surrealist, overlapping landscapes, queer illustrator and curator Syan Rose shines a light on the faces and voices of these diverse, amorphous, messy, real and imagined queer and trans communities.

In their own words, queer and trans organizers, artists, healers, comrades, and leaders speak honestly and authentically about their own experiences with power, love, pain, and magic to create a textured and nuanced portrait of queer and trans realities in America. The many themes include Black femme mental health, Pacific Islander authorship, fat queer performance art, disability and healthcare practice, sex worker activism, and much . Accompanying the narratives are Rose's startling and sinuous images that brings these leaders' words to visual life.

Our Work Is Everywhere is a graphic nonfiction book that underscores the brilliance and passion of queer and trans resistance.

Includes a foreword by Lambda Literary Award winning author and activist Leah Lakshmi Piepzna Samarasinha, author of Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice.

This Is How We Come Back Stronger: Feminist Writers on Turning Crisis into Change

In the spring of 2020, a rapidly spreading global pandemic changed the contemporary world. COVID 19 exposed dangerous fault lines in countries like the United States and the United Kingdom, which had long enjoyed the illusion that they were capable of handling large scale crises like this. The virus has brought to the fore institutional failures concerning public health, unemployment, and government stability, and exacerbated conditions for vulnerable and marginalized groups. Racial disparity, domestic abuse, food insecurity, and social welfare are reconsidered in the wake of a startling new reality: lockdown and severe economic precarity.

In essays, short fiction, poetry, and , writers respond to the personal and the political in the time of pandemic. Marking the one year anniversary of lockdown in the US and the UK, these pieces consider where we go from here—and remind us that, despite it all, we are not alone.

This Is How We Come Back Stronger is an essential collection for our times, featuring contributions from Glory Edim, Fatima Bhutto, Layla Saad, Juliet Jacques, Kate Mosse, Michelle Tea, Lisa Taddeo, Akasha Gloria Hull, Amelia Abraham, Virgie Tovar, and .

Ten percent of every book sold will be donated to the Third Wave Fund to support youth led gender justice activism.

If God Is a Virus (Break Beat Poets)

Based on original reporting from West Africa and the United States,and the poet’s experiences as a doctor and journalist, If God Is A Virus charts the course of the largest and deadliest Ebola epidemic in history, telling the stories of Ebola survivors, outbreak responders, journalists and the virus itself. Documentary poems explore which human lives are valued, how editorial decisions are weighed, what role the aid industrial complex plays in crises, and how medical myths and rumor can travel faster than microbes.These poems also give voice to the virus. Eight percent of the human genome is inherited from viruses and the human placenta would not exist without a gene descended from a virus.

my father saiddavid has taken his own life

Adam is in the middle of his own busy life, and approaching a career high in the form of a #1 New York Times bestselling book when these words from his father open a chasm beneath his feet. I Had a Brother Once is the story of everything that comes after. In the shadow of David's inexplicable death, Adam is forced to re remember a brother he thought he knew and to reckon with a ghost, confronting his unsettled family history, his distant relationship with tradition and faith, and his desperate need to understand an event that always slides just out of his grasp. This is an expansive and deeply thoughtful poetic meditation on loss and a raw, darkly funny, human story of trying to create a ritual of remembrance, mourning, forgiveness, and acceptance where once there was a life.

The Wild Fox of Yemen: Poems

Winner of the Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets, selected by Harryette MullenBy turns aggressively reckless and fiercely protective, always guided by faith and ancestry, Threa Almontaser’s incendiary debut asks how mistranslation can be a form of self knowledge and survival. A love letter to the country and people of Yemen, a portrait of young Muslim womanhood in New York after 9/11, and an extraordinarily composed examination of what it means to carry in the body the echoes of what came before, Almontaser’s polyvocal collection sneaks artifacts to and from worlds, repurposing language and adapting to the space between cultures. Half crunk and hungry, speakers move with the force of what cannot be contained by the limits of the American imagination, and instead invest in troublemaking and trickery, navigate imperial violence across multiple accents and anthems, and apply gang signs in henna, utilizing any means necessary to form a semblance of home. In doing so, The Wild Fox of Yemen fearlessly rides the tension between carnality and tenderness in the unruly human spirit.
