There Are Birds Here: For Detroit

In this poem Jamaal May, who was born and raised in Detroit, pushes back against narratives that paint the city in terms of “ruin.” With precison and intensity, May deconstructs the process of simile-making itself, saying, explicitly, no to this comparison, yes to this one. This broadside was designed and printed by Lindsay Lusby.
