Description

“Asheville activist DeWayne Barton’s resume reads like a template of commitment to and advocacy for his community, so it’s not surprising that when his alter ego B-Love collects his poetry together in the volume, Return to Burton Street, he produces a taut, jazzy, hard-knuckled drumbeat of personal and historical indignation. Consumerist society, colonialism, and still radically not post-racial America come in for some hard scrutiny. The street style is suited to the direct urgency of the matter, low on trope, high on grit, a known and necessary song sung to a familiar tune, all the better to dance to, as many of us will.” -David Hopes
