The Homeboy Songs by Robert Lashley

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Homeboy Songs is Robert Lashley’s complex homage to the black community of Tacoma, Washington. As part of a Northwest population with people from the deep South and a survivor of the Hilltop gang wars of the early 90’s, Lashley’s poetry makes sense of the multitude of voices that have surrounded him over the years. His passion joins high lyric poetry burnished by narrative structure, with a language attuned to the ear and the complexities of the human voice.
