Symphony of a Black Man

A poetry collection about metamorphosis, truth and understanding.

In ‘Symphony of a Black Man’ Dominic JP Nelson-Ashley reveals a spectrum of light we can’t see through due to it being too dense in ready-made connotations, the photons too tightly pre-packed into their assigned alignments for external and internal navigation, making it hard to see inside and just as hard, maybe, to see out. In this new poetry collection, where personal experience blossoms into the collective, his poems are charts and rough guides to a landscape defined by colour. Sharp, dry, playful, political, self aware and truthful.’
