Praise for A Gospel of Bones


A Gospel of Bones is a smile with a razor hidden beneath its tongue. A raised fist protecting the flower cradled inside of it. Gospel is how survival transfigures into testament. How cultural memory never forgotten is remembered. Gospel is what happens when one turns themselves inside out and dares another to look in: blood, beauty, and Blackness slow-dancing before their eyes.”
—Bobby LeFebre,
Poet Laureate of Colorado
