Love, War and Music -- Chapbook # 4 in the Key Poetry Series (Second Series)


Poetry by Franetta McMillian -- Chapbook # 4 in the Key Poetry Series (Second Series)

Franetta McMillian's poems are deliciously awash in the (often overlooked) inherent musicality found in the word, and in an infectious, riveting, and unabashedly singular vision. You cannot help but follow these rhythmic narrative journeys. You want to know where the poems are going - what you will see, hear, and feel on the way.

You'll also want to revisit each poem's questions and/or implications. I often found myself thinking of a line from another poet —Rainer Maria Rilke — "Love the questions like locked doors."

Ms. Mc Millan's work is a reminder that there are still infinite linguistic songs to be sung — what Patti Smith dubbed "a sea of possibilities." Let this fine volume into your heart.
