I applaud Ronaldo Wilsons pathbreaking movement into what has never, never, in history, been said. About sexuality, in particular, these poems speak with incorrigible and raving clarity. And, always, they display intellectual curiosity, and an impatient, gorgeous readiness to make language new.--Wayne Koestenbaum[A] warning to anyone tempted to believe that in objectification lies freedom.

Livid inside an apocalyptic negative capability, these poems are constructed through their makers deconstruction, and reading, I too, felt unmade.--Claudia KeelanRonaldo Wilsons POEMS OF THE BLACK OBJECT turns the parenthetical inside out, contents kicking and alive, person, race and being: where fate is in store in you, not for you, out there- in consciousness, and barely conscious, where consciousness is the accumulation of the scarcely discernible experiences.

Wilsons poems captures states of person, the thinking being, the being thinking, the being perceived, and all the slippage between stages of person, Black and on the page, folding and unfolding layers of social construction.--Erica HuntThe force here is in the erotic attachment between the human figures certainly--but also (and more surprisingly) between history and present-day experience. Ronaldo Wilson teases the reader with earnestness while he refracts event and experience. The effect is dazzling. The poems are panoramic. One part slave narrative, one part pillow book, POEMS OF THE BLACK OBJECT is a triumph of the social lyric: violent, tender, absurd.--G.E PattersonFor all the disturbances examined in this intensely lucid book of bodily desire, dead porn stars, and the high art of human survival, the voice of these poems manages to maintain a kind of giddy composure.

Perhaps the trick of it comes through his sense that, pattern organizes trauma, and so does speed. Its not so fast, the pace here- were made to look, to see, with shrewd intention. Its that Ronaldo Wilsons writing doesnt let you get too comfortable. It shifts experience and reckoning from poem to essay, theory to epistle, these intuitive modes of a person in search of a particular poetics, darting around sharp visions that could bloody or shine on the tempestuous landscape the black object emerges from.--Tisa Bryant
