I Want to Undie You

A ritual of grace and love for what remains in memory after great loss.

 

I Want To Undie You is Jaki Shelton Green’s unflinching cry of sorrow at the untimely death of her daughter Imani; and Jaki’s insistence, through her grief, on the joyful remembrance and celebration of Imani’s life.

 

This book-length poem, interspersed with Barbara Tyroler’s photographic compilations, is printed in a limited edition art gallery version, using 80# gloss interior paper in an 8 by 10 format to better highlight the imagery of the poems and the photos.
