What happens when love becomes a show?
Circus puts love on display for the whole world to gawk at. Life is a bizarre circus, from personal relationships to the political sphere. It is beautiful, and tragic, and chaotic, made up of a million silent moments. Deonte Osayande brings the rhythm and intensity of his slam poetry to his second full-length collection. His poetry addresses love and loss, race and family, politics and life in America.
