Flirting is Tim'm T. West's poignant follow-up to Red Dirt Revival: a poetic memoir in six breaths. Another poetic memoir, expressed mostly through poetry (though also prose and essay), West flirts... More > with memory, girls, boys, danger, politics, and romance". West writes in the tradition of poets like Audre Lorde, Essex Hemphill, and Pablo Neruda who all seize language as a tool reflecting social change while bridging political and erotic landscapes. Here, the distinction between the personal and political is beautifully blurred. While rooted in his experiences as black, gay-identified poet, emcee, activist, and educator, Flirting is an invitation to (re)connect others to that optimistic, joyful space where, even between rocks and hard places, hope springs eternal. Beyond word play, there is profound meaning and possibility in Flirting.< Less

More > affirmations on loving aim to mobilize the brave community of "rhyters" he imagined in his first book Red Dirt Revival. West constructs this multi-genre collection of writing unified in its exploration of the inextricable relationship between the break and its healing. Through compound words, with some poetic liberty, West moves through his|story, father|hood, book|marks, in|between, desire|ability, every|thing, and he|art with some of his most vulnerable work to date-- something of note, given the deeply personal nature of his existing work.
