Read full description of the books The Collected Poems of Ai:

"Ai is a truthteller picking her way through the burning rocks of racial and sexual lies."-Joy Harjo

Before her untimely death in 2010, Ai, known for her searing dramatic monologues, was hailed as "one of the most singular voices of her generation" (New York Times Book Review). Now for the first time, all eight books by this essential and uniquely American poet have been gathered in one volume.

from "The Cockfighter's Daughter"

I found my father,
face down, in his homemade chili
and had to hit the bowl
with a hammer to get it off,
then scrape the pinto beans
and chunks of ground beef
off his face with a knife.
