Blue's Clues. Blue TalksDVD - 2004
"The Intersection of Beauty and Crime" is a collection of poetry from Jawanza Phoenix, an attorney who uses his poems as a vehicle to explore the broken criminal justice system and the lives of the people affected by it. This powerful debut is a sizzling cocktail of crooked cops, overzealous prosecutors, innocent victims, love, longing and hope. With playful and colorful language, these poems sing, howl and heal as they confront myths about criminals, criminal defense attorneys, police officers, prosecutors and judges. Love poems, earth poems and social justice poems are woven into the fabric of the collection, creating a forceful blend of seemingly unrelated topics. These are compelling, enlightening and provocative poems that linger with the reader long after being read.
