Om Porgy's Revenge
As a child, poet Erika Abbott recognized the struggles of disabled kids at her school. She therefore became an advocate, the ringleader of the disabled posse, but as she grew, she realized people are not always just physically disabledmany of us hide emotional, spiritual, and psychological disabilities, as well.Porgys Revenge is a collection of Abbotts sometimes dark, sometimes funny poems that strike at the imagination as well as modern day politics. She blends literary references with show tunes and urban landscapes. The reader is called to see the colorful worldand the miracle of lifewith fresh eyes.Abbott is more than a winder of words; she is a storyteller. She bites back against Ugly Laws that would persecute the diseased, maimed, or mutilated. She recalls the magic of music in poems like Pippin and War. Her imagery haunts, as does her messageone that readers will not soon forget, even once the collection is closed.
