An Advance Review of Forget it:
Writing is a therapy, a solace, the home for our wandering thoughts. In her work of art, Oyindamola shows us this and more.
As she intuits, "Writing doesn't need a voice or crave to be the voice of and for anything...it trespasses without climbing over fences-giving you an invitation into your kind as though you haven't liver enough to know the windows from the doors..."
Each verse of this collection is a journey unto wholeness, a walk with the author into discovery, or not. Any reader should brace up for an exhilarating ride spiced with an array of exciting emotions.
