Roger Bonair-Agard, a veteran of the spoken-word scene and a two-time National Slam Champion, reads several of his poems from Tarnish and Masquerade, featuring a live reading in Munich, Germany. His poems chart an exile's coming-of-age and an increasingly relevant immigrant's experience. Whether set in Trinidad, Washington Heights, Texas, Brooklyn, or other less-fixed locales, these poems written (and spoken) with equal parts joy and fury are full of clarity, compassion and unsentimentality.

Poems include:

  • cane brulee
  • chantuel hymns
  • The devil in music
  • Bullet Points
  • 1981
  • The mandate
  • photo graph
  • 1986
  • Bird Watching
  • weusi alphabet
  • song for trent lott
  • truth applies for a green card
  • the sadness of migration
