LibraryThing is a cataloging and social networking site for booklovers/5(3). “I am a lion with a black mane, tearing my teeth on the piano bench,” writes Carlina Duan in the opening poem of her collection “I Wore My Blackest Hair” (Little A, ).

Loneliness, grief, identity, alienation, illness, love, sex, rage, immigration, culture: the poems in I Wore My Blackest Hair glide and dance and sprint (and sometimes chomp their way) all over the map, but what they all (or mostly) share in common is an almost stubborn sense of defiance.
