One Stick Song: Poetry and Prose Poems.
by Alexie, Sherman.

Publisher Information:
Hanging Loose Press, Brooklyn: 2000.

A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. In this collection of poems and poem-tight prose pieces, Alexie targets lies and hypocrisy. He mocks the mealymouthed cant of the politically correct and, in a lashing poem titled "Open Books," the arrogance of a certain ilk of poet, then, elsewhere, tempers his rage with tenderness. His hard-hitting poems are loosely knit and suitable for performance, but his prose pieces are constructed as diabolically as barbed wire, especially the clever yet emotionally resonant essay "The Warriors," in which musings on baseball segue into thoughts on friendship and such frank disclosures as his confession that although television once had him convinced that white women were sexier than brown women, life taught him the truth about love.
