The last two seconds - poems

The Last Two Seconds is an astonishing confrontation with time--our experience of it as measured out by our perceptions, our lives, and our machines.

The N word - who can say it, who shouldn't, and why by Asim, Jabari, 1962-

The N word - who can say it, who shouldn't, and why
