With verbal urgency and visionary imagination, this collection features the work of one of the Caribbean s most important poets. Presenting what life is like on a small island, vulnerable to the wounded thrashings of world capitalism in crisis an island where livelihoods are destroyed at the flourish of a Brussel bureaucrat s pen; where Paradise is a tourist cruise ship that reminds the people of their neocolonial status; andwhere global consumerism has poisoned the ambitions of the young into drugs, crime, and violence these candid poems are a warning of the perils fragmenting societies and ecologies."
