The poems and prose of Coleman's sixth book, Hand Dance, show a wry political awareness ("inside this poor person is a rich one / struggling to come out"), a streetwise knowledge of what it means to be black in urban American ("in the world i come from / violence is a language and a bullet / sudden insight"), as well as a heady sensuality.
