"If Tiana Clark's I Can't Talk About the Trees Without the Blood were a blank book bearing that title alone, I would still feel like I was in the presence of a profound lyric gift. It's astonishing, the heft of that declaration, and the way these poems rise up to meet its rigor and clarity. Toni Morrison commanded writers to "make it political as hell, and make it irrevocably beautiful." Clark, as if in response, writes, "Let us marvel at the Love and Grace that bought / and brought us here." The formal dexterity of these poems, the vision that takes us from Daphne to Lorca to Phillis Wheatley to Balanchine to Rihanna to Rukeyser, announces a significant and comprehensive new poetic talent. This beauty is irrevocable--Clark has written one of the best first books of poetry I have ever read."----Kaveh Akbar
