King Me
Roger Reeves

King Me is muscular, gritty, at times confrontational, but always rooted in human interactions and emotional life. Roger Reeves uses the reader’s discomfort with the subject matter to revel in the art of the everyday. Reeves’ poetry argues that black history is not merely black history; It is human history, a history of suffering, a history that belongs to every single one of us, regardless of the smaller groups we associate with. This universality is King Me’s greatest strength, expanding the reader’s viewpoint through the poet’s perspective. The book deals with the issues of love and masculinity, poverty and class, and race relations, all in fresh new ways, acknowledging – without ever succumbing to – the dangers of anger, hate, and prejudice.
