ONE OF THE YEAR’S BEST—The New York Times and Washington Post

A voice for justice, anti-racism, and equality—here is the greatest and most powerful work of the people’s poet, Wanda Coleman.

Coleman was a beat-up, broke, and Black woman who wrote with anger, humor, and clarity. Wicked Enchantment: Selected Poems is a selection of 130 of her poems, edited and introduced by Terrance Hayes. Rejected by the elites during her lifetime, here’s what people are saying now:

One of the year’s best! “These poems are wildly fun and inventive . . . and frequently hilarious; they seem to cover every human experience and emotion.”—New York Times

—Winner, California Independent Bookseller Alliance ‘Golden Poppy’ Book Award 2020

—“Required Reading” Bustle

—“One of the greatest poets ever to come out of L.A.” The New Yorker

—One of the year’s best! “Fantastically entertaining and deeply engaging...potent distillations of creative rage, social critique, and subversive wit.”—Washington Post

—“Her work pushes us to confront injustice with as much candor as she did.”—Poetry

A self-made writer from Black Los Angeles, Wanda Coleman made art while living every day with racism, poverty, violence. Her triumph is in words that endure. It’s time for Coleman’s courageous, impassioned, inspiring, one-of-a-kind voice to reach readers everywhere.

Wanda in Worryland

and have to go look in to the closet to see if his clothes

are still there

i have been known to imagine a situation

and then get involved in it, upset, angry and

i have gone after people

once i tried to hang myself and got terribly ashamed

afterwards because i was really faking it

i have gone after people

with rocks

i have cursed out old white lady cart pushers in

supermarkets who block the aisles in slow motion

i have gone after people

with my fists

i have walked out on pavlovian trainers who mistook
