Screaming Freedom

ByAllen Hines

Allen Michael Hines' poems are spare, thought-provoking, and imbued with a driving desire to understand and be understood. Hines, who lives with cerebral palsy, seeks “to give a passionate voice to the realities of disability” – and he does so adeptly in this volume. Screaming Freedom contains poems of melancholy, hope, reflection, and the search for unconditional love and acceptance. They are probing, at times political – and always personal and poignant. While Hines' poems touch on Northeast Ohio communities, landmarks, and history as they explore the intricacies a life apart from the mainstream, their message is universal. They are underscored by a quest for equality, by a desire to examine the realities of the under-represented. They give light to the unique challenges, perspectives, struggles and strengths of those who live with “disabilities.” But Hines' poems ultimately transcend the topic of disability, honing in on the humanity in us all.
