Happy Halloween!  What is scarier than the freedom of black hair growing out of bright black brains? Muwhahaha. My Halloween gift to all of you is the kindle/tablet/online version of my chapbook GOOD HAIR GONE FOREVER.

My shero namesake Alexis De Veaux took time out to write these words about the collection:

“The poems of GOOD HAIR GONE FOREVER wreak with the sensate badass-ness of a sure nuff trouble maker, a twenty-first century afroheaded trickster black woman who spits nappyness and breathes mirrors. Read the signs: this is a dangerous free. No hemming and hawing allowed.”  –Alexis De VeauxAuthor of Warrior Poet: A Biography of Audre Lorde and An Enchanted Hair Tale
