No Jewels: A Biography [of Sorts] Writ in Stanza

Tai Allen



No Jewels is the first book from poet, singer and creative director Tai Allen. The chapbook narrates a young life that was loved well, loved wrong and, sometimes, not loved at all. Sadly, this tale is not an aberration or an oddity. There are numerous #NoJewels scenarios in every locale, and there you find false-love victims who encounter abuse and control. This book of lines, devices, spaces, forms and stanzas hopes to serve them all. The poems speaks of both the deeds and the emergence from them, with admirable self-love to preserve sanity and soul—ambitious, but possible!
