This long form, investigative poem freed me of how I saw poetry. It gave me permission to do what I wanted. The collage of the anecdotes and prison protocol Wright creates is where poetry can go if you let it expand further and further. This is the hybrid form at its best; this is where she created a new genre we’re lucky to have.
